Modern life is busy... exceptionally busy... and the pace of life isn't going to ease up any time soon...

For many of us life has become an endless, exhausting to-do list.  


Juggling work (often with an energy draining commute), family commitments, fitting in exercise, trying to have a social life or at least half an hour of Netflix before bed and then getting  a decent amount of sleep….. 


Only to wake up again the next day to do it all over again.


Tony Crabbe, business psychologist and author of Busy says, “People are running their lives at breakneck speed and don’t have the energy or perspective to step back and see if there’s a different way of doing things.”


Mindfulness for Busy People is designed to give you the space you need to review and rebalance life.


It is YOUR opportunity to step back and identify a different way of doing things. One that works for you.


Mindfulness as a ‘buzz word’ has increased in popularity over the past decade but put very simply it means to pay attention and focus on the here and now.


Over the course of six weeks we will explore and understand the principles of mindfulness and apply them in a very practical way to our daily life.

In this course you will learn:

  • check

    To become more aware of your day-to-day emotions and thinking habits

  • check
    To develop strategies to help you respond to stressful and difficult situations
  • check
    To find ways to carve out more time in your daily life for the things that you want to do 
  • check
    Simple meditation practices that can help you to make improvements to your life and wellbeing


Each session is a combination of short presentations, discussion, practical exercises and mindfulness practices.


Think of it as a weekly training session for your brain, to help get your mind in tip top shape to handle the stresses and strains of modern life. 


Participants are encouraged to share their personal experiences with the group, although this is not essential. 


The course provides a safe and supportive environment to explore your own experiences and develop your personal mindfulness practice.
