If you have wanted to learn to meditate but don’t know where to start, then here is your chance. We work in a supportive group with clear live guidance and recorded meditations at home

 This is the best environment to keep you on track until mindfulness has become second nature and simply a way of life. You do not need to sit cross-legged on a cushion ! Enjoy the calm and sense of freedom that comes from being in the moment. Give yourself this valuable gift and become the master of anxiety, low mood and distraction. 

As one participant said “I thought, if not now, then when?! ”

In the 8 week course we will meet once a week for two hours to practice mindfulness techniques, study the workings of the mind and share our experiences. We will be sitting, walking, lying down and moving gently.

There will be some written exercises and discussion as well as times of silence and meditation.

To achieve positive results students commit to one lesson per week and 45 to 60 minutes of home practice 6 days per week. In this way old destructive habits of reacting to stress can be replaced by new ways of responding with intelligence and we will find that we are better equipped to deal with tension, fear or pain.  

With mindfulness we can also be more present during our pleasant and joyful moments and thus able to enjoy the good times to the full.

This course is suitable for adults of any belief system or none. Participants will receive recordings covering six different meditation routines to facilitate their practice at home.

After the end of the course, Alison will be available for coaching by phone or Skype for those who would like to develop even more Mindfulness in their lives. Those who have studied the 8-week course are welcome to participate in any future courses for a 10 euro contribution per lesson, we love to have you back! (as long as space allows).

If you have always wanted to meditate and don’t know how, or can’t maintain the regular practice then a personal programme will teach you the techniques, help you get over blocks and keep you on track while you establish good habits. Once your practice is on a firm footing then you may only need an occasional session as a brush up.
