Mindfulness is applicable to every aspect of our lives: the way we work, our relationships and our mental, emotional and physical health and wellbeing. Our courses teach contemporary mindfulness and meditation, which are rooted in ancient tradition. Learn effective practices to navigate the stresses of modern city life and develop a calm, kind and attentive state of mind.
