Practise Mindfulness

Gain a grounding in mindfulness or refresh your practice with our Be Calm, Be Happy courses

COVID-19 Update – Please note that due to COVID-19 we have unfortunately had to cancel face to face course meetings for the next few months.  We hope to be adding more online opportunities in the near future so please check back with this page from time to time.  Please see below a note from Dr Lauri Bower the Be Calm Be Happy Course Coordinator.

Dear Friends,
In these strange and unsettling times we each wonder what we can best do to look after ourselves.
We know the practice of mindfulness is a foundation and support in difficult times.
It is the ground that can hold us when everything seems shaky and uncertain.
For this reason we have decided to make the guided meditations from the Be Calm Be Happy course freely available to anyone who would like to listen to them.

You can find them all at this link.

Usually these are password protected and only available to people who have attended the course. But everything has changed and we really need to look after ourselves at the moment.
Please use these meditations in a way that is most helpful to sustain a regular practice and do share them with others who will find them helpful.
By looking after ourselves we are in a good, stable position to care for others.

Many thanks.
A lotus for you, a Buddha to be,

Dr. Lauri Bower
Be Calm; Be Happy Course Co-ordinator

Our courses introduce mindfulness and meditation practices to help us live a fuller and happier life. Mindfulness and meditation are about being fully focused on the present moment, not absorbed in regrets, plans, worries or other thoughts. When we practise mindfulness we create more stillness which allows us to see more clearly what brings us happiness and what causes suffering. With this awareness, we can take positive choices in everyday life.

Available in person and online, over six weeks, on a retreat and in other formats, our Be Calm, Be Happy courses are a flexible way to learn to live with more depth and freedom.

Note that all our courses operate on a Not for Profit basis. Any surplus remaining when all costs have been met is returned to the Charity to support our work in promoting the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh in the UK.
