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 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 sixty 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.

We will explore through the use of transformational processes, how much of the conflicts that arise between partners, friends or family - or that keep us out of loving and nurturing relationships - are based on us not being aware of the stories, fears and self-judgements behind our words, feelings and actions.


We will also identify where you do not feel worthy of a love that reflects the highest and best within you and how you can navigate relationship conflicts with more presence and grace.

You'll discover what's behind any emotional triggering that you may be experiencing in your relationships and how you can access and heal those core emotions...

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.

Rooted in ancient traditions of meditation, mindfulness has become the subject of increasing scientific attention in recent years and has been shown to be helpful for a wide range of physical and mental health difficulties and for general wellbeing.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction will lead you through the key principles of living mindfully, and introduce practices to help you cultivate mindfulness in daily life.

In the course you will learn:

to stay in touch with the present moment and be less caught up in negative or stressful thinking patterns
to bring a non-judgemental and accepting attitude to yourself and your experiences
to develop more awareness and understanding of stress and helpful ways of responding to it
to use simple meditation techniques which can transform daily life, including sitting meditation, body scan and mindful movement
You will also be invited to develop your own practice through weekly homework (about 45 mins a day). We will provide course materials and CDs for you to do this. The course is open to anyone - however, applicants will be asked to fill in a brief questionnaire and have a phone orientation before their place is confirmed.

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.
