workshop participant



"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."

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 looking after our 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, York 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, sleep and exercise.

Ideal for: Beginners.  Price: £95 per person.  This workshop is managed by York City Council, please book via www.feelinginspired.co.uk or call 01904 552806.


Mindfulness at Work

Private workshops available on a commissioned basis

Neuroscience has re-written our understanding of the brain over the last two decades. These workshops will explore why forward-thinking organisations such as Google, Pricewaterhouse Coopers and the US Marines are incorporating mindfulness courses into their training and development programmes.

The application of mindfulness in the workplace is a means of supporting the physical and mental health of employees, as well as cultivating employee engagement, resilience, creativity and productivity.  

Ideal for: Those looking for inovative approaches to improving employee health/effectiveness. 

Further information is available on our workplace page.
