*** Please note - I am not a 'mindfulness' or 'meditation' teacher as such - I do not have a certificate to teach mindfulness. I have undergone training in MBSR (Mindful Based Stress Reduction) for Health Professionals, Mindful Training for Health and Health Related Professionals, have attended meditation (up to 10 day) silent retreats. This knowledge that I share is based on these teachings, my own experience of meditation and mindful practice over a period of approx 20 years and my following of teachers such as Jack Kornfield, Pema Chodron, Jon Kabat-Zinn and Thich Nhat Hanh. This is very much about creating a space for people to learn, practice and discuss mindfulness and meditation as this was not available in this area.***
