Ruth Ormston is a part-time City solicitor, and a regular practitioner of mindfulness.
Hi. I'm Ruth and I set up Calm City Mind in 2015 to focus on mindfulness and well-being with a particular focus on those living and working in the city. I've found mindfulness very useful in my professional and personal life and I continue to develop my own practice in that context.
I run workplace and public mindfulness and stress reduction taster sessions as well as longer courses which offer a more in-depth experience of the practice. I am available to speak at conferences, or write on the topic. I ran mindfulness sessions at Rethink Mental Illness' National Members' Day in 2015 and 2016.
I've undertaken training with Bangor University Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice (Teacher training level 1, group work and mindfulness inquiry) and regularly engage in CPD and supervision, as well as attending meditation courses and retreats to develop and sustain my own practice. I follow the mindfulness Good Practice Guidelines and am listed on the UK Network of Mindfulness Teachers, which lists teachers who have been assessed as demonstrating that they meet the Good Practice Guidelines (i.e. being suitably trained, committed to continuous professional development, holding appropriate insurance, and receiving supervision for their teaching).
If you have any questions, I'd love to hear from you so please just get in touch.
