considered a ‘nice-to-have’…
it’s a ‘must-have’

Further Information

If you would like to find out more about an introductory event please get in touch.

Please note: we are a small team committed to working in ‘brain friendly’ ways.  Whilst we very much look forward to speaking with you we aim to put our team’s wellbeing and our wish to model alternative ways of working above and beyond commitments to unrealistic response time pressures. We are conscious that this can be counter-cultural and thank you for your patience.

Beyond Awareness Raising

Awareness raising is common, yet meaningful change, sadly, is not, with significant implementation gaps between organisational aspiration and day to day approaches.

Mindfulness is a skill which takes time to be learned. Whilst participants may well experience a change in ‘state’ as a result of an introductory session, the researched benefits of mindfulness come from the regular practice of mindfulness meditation and the possibility of changes in ‘trait’*.

Mindfulness training offers powerful opportunities for individuals and organisations to develop more sustainable ‘inner resource packages’ and to ‘build a better normal’.

Organisations are encouraged to consider how they can support staff who would like to go on to learn mindfulness. This can range from us simply signposting to books, agreeing staff discounts on our public courses through to the commissioning of in-house mindfulness training courses.


Tailored training to meet organisational needs

‘..If introductory workshops sow seeds of possibility; mindfulness training cultivates the inner conditions required for their germination; and brain friendly workplaces the environments necessary for their continued growth’
