"10/10 - I can use this personally and as a doctor, will pass on the word to other NHS members... I can see this being used in so many areas.  It's not avoiding life but living for the moment. 

This technique is going to be global very soon."

Workshops and Events


Taster Sessions for Beginners

9:30am - 4:30pm

Most of us experience improved health when we...

  • eat a balanced diet
  • sleep well
  • exercise

But how often do we consider the benefits of a healthy mind?

Mindfulness meditation has been shown to be beneficial to managing a variety of health concerns such as stress, anxiety, high blood pressure, IBS, CFS/ME, fibromyalgia and depression.

Our introductory workshops provide an opportunity to spend the day at Middlethorpe Hall, exploring the benefits of mindfulness meditation and discovering why taking an active approach to looking after our mind is as essential to our health and wellbeing as diet and exercise.

Ideal for: Beginners.  Price: £90 per person.  This workshop is managed by York City Council, please book via www.feelinginspired.co.uk or call 01904 552806.
