Mindfulness & Meditation for Everyday

Eight weeks course

 

Meditation is the dissolution of thoughts

in Eternal awareness or Pure consciousness

without objectification,

knowing without thinking,

merging finitude in infinity.

Voltaire

 

 

This innovative course offers a weekly exploration of meditation and mindfulness through body awareness, sound and the breath.

 

These very simple and user-friendly practices relieve stress, foster healthy habits, increase our ability to make decisions and prioritise what matters most to us. They can be incorporated effortlessly into your daily routine. You will be encouraged to find your own unique rhythm and what works best for you.
 

No previous experience is needed; all will get opportunities to deepen their meditative practice if they already have one or start one if they are new to it.

Small groups.

 

£300 per course per person.

Dates and locations TBA

The faculty of voluntarily bringing back a wandering attention, over and over again,

is the very root of judgment, character, and will. . .

An education which should improve this faculty would be the education par excellence.

But it is easier to define the ideal

than to give practical instructions for bringing it about. 

William James

Guided Meditation Sessions

 

Between stimulus and response there is a space.
In that space is our power to choose our response.
In our response lies our growth and our freedom.

Mindful Family

 

Mindful Parenting Sessions

 

Your children are not your children.
They are sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself. 
They come through you but not from you.
And though they are with you yet they belong not to yo
You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.

You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,

which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.

You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.

You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the make upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.

Let your bending in the archer's hand be for gladness.

For even as He loves the arrow that flies, so He also loves the bow that is stable.

Khalil Gibran

 

A series of sessions creating a supportive community of mindful parents. In these gatherings, versatile and practical tools will be introduced, reflected upon, discussed and practised.

Mindful Schools

 

I offer bespoke programmes for school leaders, parents and children ages 3-18.

 

Education is a holistic process involving the school administrators, teachers, school counsellors and staff but also the parents. As we wish to successfully improve the students attention skills, self-awareness and confidence, overall performance, respectful and kind behaviour, general physical, mental and emotional well-being, we need to bring the parent body on board. We need to remember that we are all here to educate these young people in a coherent effort and lead them by example.

May I be in my wonder in every day.

May I allow myself to be in wonder in every choice I make.

 
 
An article in the Telegraph
 
According to Veronique Ryan, who trained as a GP in her native France and now advises on healing, it's not as impossible as it sounds. "Being more mindful, focusing on the present moment, can benefit everyone. It's not just for gurus," she insists. "Mindfulness is a way of tapping into that feeling of calm and happiness, one breath at a time."....
 

Thank you Catalina Stogdon for your lovely words. 

It was such a pleasure to meet you and share some of my experience with you!

 

The World exists as you Perceive it...

It is Not What you See, but How you See it...

It is Not What you Hear, but How you Hear it...

It is Not What you Feel, but How you Feel it...

Rumi
