Who is the “Introduction to Mindfulness” course suitable for?
This will be the first course that I been able to offer in person since March 2020…..I’m excited!
If you are curious about mindfulness; if you would like to learn Mindfulness in a relaxed way, supported by an experienced teacher; if you are interested in improving your health and well-being, then you might like to try this course!
There is no upper age limit for this mindfulness course, but it would help if you were over 18 years.

What can I expect to be doing on this course?
This is a practical course which supports you to develop your own mindfulness practice and apply it to your everyday life.
Each class includes periods of quiet practice, allowing you some head space and time for self-care. You will learn a range of mindfulness practices, including mindful breathing, sitting meditation, guided body scan meditation, and gentle movement.
I will encourage and support you to undertake short home practices between classes. During classes, there are opportunities for group dialogue and the chance to discuss your experience of applying mindfulness in your daily life. While classes are designed to support you to bring awareness to the present moment, they are not intended to involve group therapy and you will not be under any pressure to disclose personal information.
Practical course details:
- One 90 minute session per week for a period of between 4 weeks.
- An overview of the theory and principles of Mindfulness.
- Recommended 10 – 20 minutes of daily practice using 2 audio recordings guided by Susan.
- Further mindfulness resources and information for follow up.
- An opportunity to meet with a diverse and supportive group of people.
This course will be in person ( at long last!!)
