“The recent Tantra day in Brighton with Julia was excellent. My partner and I found it playful and funny at times and deeply profound at others. It gave the two of us a chance to explore different ways of connecting and we have continued to effectively use the teachings in our lives since the workshop”.

Lars and Janet ages 51/52, Research Fellow and Marketing Consultant. Brighton. (Taste of Tantra workshop.)

“Julia is an inspiring and confident teacher. Her lightness, passion and gentle coaxing made it a fun adventure to explore. I loved the chakra meditation – great way to release tension, and the laughter meditation as well. Beautiful ways to open the body for a deeper and more sensual perception. Thank you so much!”

Mindfulness has been used for thousands of years to promote wellbeing. It is now widely recognised as being a powerful tool that can help anyone enhance their appreciation of life, manage stress, and even improve performance in activities and tasks. In the media it has been referred to as the ‘mindfulness revolution’. Its advocates even include an American Congressman, and it's now used in a wide variety of settings, such as healthcare, business, education, and sport.
There is also strong scientific evidence that ‘tried and tested’ 8-week mindfulness courses such as Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) can reduce stress and anxiety (MBCT & MBSR), and relapse rates into depression (MBCT).
Nick Diggins has taught over fifty 8-week mindfulness courses, as well as many shorter courses. He has an MA in Teaching Mindfulness-based Courses, and is an Associate Teacher at the Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice at Bangor University.

The set will be built around tracks from all 13 of Steve’s albums and will include all-time favourites like Mr Soft, Judy Teen, Mr Raffles, Sebastian, and of course the ever-popular Make Me Smile (Come Up And See Me), all blended in with more recent tracks from critically-acclaimed albums The Quality Of Mercy and Stranger Comes To Town.

In this course we focus on developing calm and clarity from the practice of yoga and meditation. Through practising asana (yoga postures) with an awareness of our breath and our connection to the ground, we are able to release tension and move more freely. The asana practice will prepare us for periods of sitting where we explore various techniques to help bring steadiness and quiet to body and mind.

About the tutor
Cara has been teaching yoga in Brighton since 2000 and has completed the British Wheel of Yoga teacher’s diploma with Peter Blackaby. Over the years, her interest in the more meditative aspects of yoga has increased, and she has completed the British Wheel’s meditation module with Sarah Ryan and Gill Lloyd.

Mindfulness has been used for thousands of years to promote wellbeing. It is widely recognised as being a powerful tool that can help anyone enhance their appreciation of life, manage stress, and even improve performance in activities and tasks.
Mindfulness is now recommended by doctors and is also used in schools, business, and even sport.
This course will consist of 4 sessions and will be a basic introduction to mindfulness meditation. It will include a range of mindfulness practices and provide an opportunity to get a ‘taste’ of what it means to ‘be mindful’. It will also cover some of the skills and attitudes which are at the heart of mindfulness.
The course will not explicitly cover the ways that mindfulness can be used to manage stressful or difficult experiences, nor will it explore in detail the way mindfulness can be used to understand ourselves and our lives more deeply. However many people find that doing the meditation practices helps them feel more calm and ‘centred’ and this course can serve as a starting point for further learning and practicing.

Mindfulness has been used for thousands of years for promoting a general sense of 'wellbeing'. This course is relevant for anyone and will provide tools and an approach to life that can help all of us appreciate positive experiences more and be more effective in our daily activities. Mindfulness particularly helps reduce ‘over thinking’ which for all of us can so easily reduce our enjoyment of life.

It has also been scientifically shown to reduce stress, anxiety and low moods or depression.. Many people have also reported finding mindfulness very helpful in both their personal relationships and work roles.
The course includes a substantial course handbook and 5 CDs of guided mindfulness meditation tracks.

Tai Chi Ch'uan is an ancient form of slow, graceful and rhythmic exercise which originated in China, where it is still extremely popular, often being performed in public parks early in the morning when the air is at its freshest. The style taught here is the Yang style Short Form as developed by Professor Ch'eng Man Ch'ing, currently the most popular form of Tai Chi in the U.K.

Tai Chi is sometimes referred to as 'meditation in movement' or 'swimming in air' for externally that is how it appears. It is a soft martial art, quite unlike karate, ju jitsu or any of the 'hard' martial arts which rely on force and speed.

Tai Chi strengthens our internal energy, and allows it to flow more freely through the body. It is gentle and non-violent, though after much practice it is an extremely effective form of self defence.
