Courses & Workshops

Sunday Online Mindfulness Circles.

November, December 2022. 

During these sessions we practise mindfulness and self compassion together as a community . These online sessions provide an opportunity for you to experience stillness,  awaken the senses, and come home to the body through heart-centred mindfulness practices.

Whether you’ve been practising for some time or are new to mindfulness, you’re welcome.

 The practices of mindfulness and self-compassion help us to tune into and familiarise ourselves with our reality, discerning what’s  important in our changing lives, while also responding to life’s challenges  more skilfully, instead of reacting to what we don’t wish to experience.

Self-Compassion – sometimes described as ‘a lubricant for the heart’  allows us to meet our experience with greater acceptance and care as we deepen into more conscious and tender relationship towards ourselves and others.

I look forward to you joining me for some or all of these upcoming sessions:.

We plant seeds in the ground
And dreams in the sky,

Hoping that, someday, the roots of one
Will meet the up stretched limbs of the other.

It has not happened yet.
We share the sky, all of us, the whole world:

Together, we are a tribe of eyes that look upward,
Even as we stand on uncertain ground.

The earth beneath us moves, quiet and wild,
Its boundaries shifting, its muscles wavering.

The dream of sky is indifferent to all this,
Impervious to borders, fences, reservations.

The sky is our common home, the place we all live.
There we are in the world together.

The dream of sky requires no passport.
Blue will not be fenced. Blue will not be a crime.

Look up. Stay awhile. Let your breathing slow.
Know that you always have a home here.

8 Week Mindful Self-Compassion Course, February  2023

What is Self-Compassion?

Self-compassion involves treating yourself like you would a good friend who is having a hard time, whatever the circumstances.  Our western culture places great emphasis on being kind to our family, friends and neighbours who maybe struggling. But typically we don’t treat ourselves as well as we do those who are close to us.

Self-compassion is a practice in which we learn to be a good friend to ourselves when we need it most – to become an inner ally rather than an inner enemy.

Although a simple way to think about self-compassion is treating yourself as you would treat a good friend, the more complete definition involves three core elements that we bring to bear when we are in pain: Self-kindness, Common Humanity and Mindfulness .

How well we have lived
How well we have loved
How well we have learned to let go
