Zen & Mindfulness


Zen & Mindfulness

I’ve completed a Mindfulness Diploma, and have, especially in the last few years, undergone a spiritual journey where many principles and teachings of ‘Zen’ has improved my mental well-being. I now offer what I’ve learned,  via:

Zen Mindfulness Course for Beginners

£5 per session

I run an initial 6 week course on Mindfulness for beginners, and follow this up with 10 practice sessions, and thereafter ongoing where required, to really integrate mindfulness into your life.

The course covers all elements of mindfulness, with practical practice sessions to encourage you. There will be present moment practices such as mindful eating and mindful movements, as well as breathing techniques designed to increase your awareness to the here and now and acknowledge what is going on in your mind. The course includes guided meditations and notes on 40 practices to really embed mindfulness as your true nature.

This course runs weekly. I currently have two such groups running, one in Falkland and the other in Kirkcaldy. Please contact me for further info; newcomers always welcome.

I run Mindful Walks each month (please check the events page) at different locations in Fife.
