“I had a small amount of meditation experience before taking this course, but had never felt like I fully understood what I was doing or trying to achieve. The Mindfulness course provided me with a much deeper understanding of how and why to meditate, and has helped me to implement meditation practice into my daily life. I cannot thank Dave enough for this and would definitely recommend doing this course.”

This course is based on the fact that the brain has a property of neuroplasticity. Both the brain and the nervous system can change structurally and functionally under the influence of the signals from the environment. Learning and memory are examples of plasticity.

It implicitly follows that meditators are able to change some neural paths in the brain through meditation, and this can result in a dramatic change in your outlook on life events. This profound result of sustained practice, known for many centuries to meditation practitioners, has been confirmed by scientific studies in the last two decades.

Although the meditations taught have their origins in Zen Buddhism this is a secular, evidence based, course that meshes well with everyday life. This course draws on the work of Jon Kabat-Zinn who is the father of secular Mindfulness in the West as well many other scientific studies.

Students will also be taught mindful movement in the form of the Hachi Danken, a Japanese version of the Ba Duan Jin Qi Gong form. Not only does this sequence allow engagement with mindful movement but it also boosts health and vitality when practised daily.
