This six week course is a great opportunity to really establish a new mindfulness practice making it into a habit with the support of others in the group to share experiences both challenges and achievements.
Each week you will receive a different formal meditation to practice and many informal tools to use all day so by the end of the course you will have loads of tools for your toolbox

Week 5. An exploration of mindful self-compassion, what it might mean to be kind to ourselves and how to cultivate feelings of goodwill, kindness and warmth towards self and others.
