About this event
Are you interested in meditation, wellbeing, relaxation and creative expression? Come join us to explore the rich field of mindfulness and creativity together – everyone welcome!
Sessions include guided mindfulness practices, songs, creative exercises, time for reflection and sharing of experiences and creative work.
Previously called ‘Mindfulness & Music’, our new title ‘Creative Mindfulness’ reflects how the scope of our sessions has broadened over time to include playing with words and visuals as well as with sound and music.
Each session starts with mindfulness, helping us to slow down, rest, revive and arrive in the Here & Now. From that place of connection with our body, mind and heart, we embark on creative exercises to tap into playfulness, ease and inspiration. No special training needed, but if you have a creative background that’s very welcome, too!
Four levels of pricing available, please choose the one that’s right for your circumstances: £5/10/15/20. Your generosity is greatly appreciated and is supporting Joe’s and Susanne’s work.

Our vision is to build sangha/community around the healing and nourishing experiences of mindfulness, creativity, deep listening, play, relaxation and togetherness. It’s a great joy to see this slowly happening – connections are growing, people are coming back, and a good few regulars are joining every month.
