Keeping a mindfulness practice alive, even after completing an 8-week course, can sometimes prove challenging. Most of us need a bit of support to feed our commitment and infuse the daunting journey of self-discovery with a sense of power and delight. I am passionate about creating spaces for people to practice mindfulness with others as well as providing a nurturing environment for working more intimately in a one-on-one. Please have a look below to find out more about upcoming top-up sessions and rates for one-on-ones.
This spring I will be offering monthly top up sessions. These evenings include a 30 minute meditation, a period of sharing and feedback, and a talk on a mindfulness related theme. The last half hour is spent connecting with the group over tea and something sweet. Past themes have included ‘The power of the pause’ and ‘The Hindrances: Understanding what gets in the way of being mindful.’ The cost of each session is £12. These sessions are usually held in the homes of past students so space is limited. Please inquire if you are interested and I will reserve your place if there is room.
Monday, March 26th – 7:30-9:30pm — Gould Road Twickenham.
Thursday, April 19th – 7:30-9:30pm – Venue to be announced.
Monday, May 21st – 7:30-9:30pm – Venue to be announced.
Thursday, June 14th – 7:30-9:30pm – Venue to be announced.
One on Ones
I offer hourly sessions for people who would like more time to explore the spaces where life and practice meet. I like to begin each session with a short guided meditation so we can direct our attention to the body and ground ourselves in what’s arising for us in the moment. The remaining time provides a dynamic space for exploring the themes in one’s life and practice that are proving challenging. This might involve the tricky work of holding and working with emotions or the art of bringing mindfulness into relationships at work and at home.
These sessions are priced on a sliding scale — £25 concession, £35 standard, and £50 sponsor. Please contact me to discuss a rate that works for your income and circumstances. If you are able to pay the sponsor rate this will support others who do not have the means to pay.
One-off sessions or more regular sessions are both available, and for those of you that are less local, I also offer Skype sessions.
I look forward to inquiring into your life and practice in ways that ease suffering, and restore a sense of meaningfulness in what it is to be human.
