Time on my own to reflect and just be has always been important to me, whether I realised that whatever I was doing offered that, or not. In my younger days I just knew walking, for example, was helpful to me but hadn't thought to think why. As my relective practice grew, so it became increasingly important to offer myself this space, resulting in me spending time on retreats, on Iona, at St Beuno's, at Ampleforth Abbey and at Samye Ling.

As part of this self-reflective journey, I completed a year-long course in Mindfulness at the Tibetan Buddhist Centre, Samye Ling in 2009 with the Mindfulness Association and then co-taught groups with an experienced facilitator for several years. We facilitated an 8-week courses originally devised by Jon Kabat Zinn, adapted by Mark Williams and subsequently approved by NICE (the National Institute of Clinical Excellence) in some areas of the NHS.

I delivered this course on my own for several years in various settings; in the community, to a cancer help-group and to staff at a NHS trust. Reflecting a change in how people prefer to earn about mindfulness, I now longer offer a regular 8-week course. To learn about mindfulness, I now offer individual sessions (generally between two and four) to start you with your own practice supported by an app, CD's or downloads and/or joining the regular drop-in groups. If you wish to learn with a friend or member of your family, that is also an option. Details available here.

My experience is that everyone who engages with the practice gets some benefit, and for some it can be truly life changing. More information about mindfulness is available in my booklet, Mindfulness, an Introduction and on the Mental Health's Federation website, Be Mindful.
