Mindfulness & Stress Management Courses In North London

We live in a world where we often find ourselves either ruminating on the past or fast-forwarding to the future in a way which is not necessarily beneficial to our well-being. 

This 8-week course is heavily based on the evidence-based gold-standard Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Course and is designed to help you:

  • experience 'being in the moment' more - appreciating the present;
  • approach stress and negative thinking in a  different way;
  • boost energy and resilience;
  • work towards living life in a way that is more focused, balanced and calm.

The groups for each course are intentionally small (usually a maximum of 10 participants) and so early booking is advised.

If you would like more information on the 8-week course please visit the mindfulness page of the website, or have a look at the FAQs. If you have any queries or would like to discuss anything at all though please do just get in touch.

Next Fortnightly Course - Starts January 2018

This course follows the same course structure and outline as the weekly course, but the sessions take place fortnightly (as 'double' sessions), so may be more suitable for those who find either a weekly or evening commitment difficult. Daily home practice of 30-40 minutes is required for the course and attendance at all sessions is strongly encouraged.

Dates & Times :  17 January, 3 February & 17 February - all 10:00 - 14:00; 3 March 10:00 - 17:00 (longer session)

Location: N16

Cost: £250 (£175 concessions): includes teaching & guidance for all sessions, pre-course orientation phone call, detailed handouts from each session and audio MP3 files for the home practice.

Course spaces are limited so advance booking is required. I usually arrange a pre-course phone to go through the course and timing with you in more detail. If you are interested in booking on, please register your details and I will send you further information about the course and a booking form.

Graduate Sessions - London

These sessions usually take place the first Sunday of every month and provide an opportunity for people who have  either done an 8-week mindfulness course or who have a regular form of practice to come together, reconnect with and deepen practice, whilst being guided as a group. We also usually have tea and biscuits afterwards for anyone who wants to stay and chat. The theme for this term is 'patience' and looking at how we can bring that to our practice, both formal and informal. Places are cheaper if booked in advance and as a block, but equally, subject to space you are very welcome just drop in on the day if you prefer. To book  your place in advance please fill out  this booking form and return it to ruth@calmcitymind.com.

Mindfulness In The Workplace

Calm City Mind regularly runs workplace taster sessions which can range from 45 mins to 3 hours and introduce people to mindfulness with a particular focus on its use in the workplace, as well as longer courses in businesses to help employees use mindfulness as a tool for managing their well-being and resilience.  The taster sessions are ideally suited to up to 15 people and can be run over a lunch break, early morning, or straight after work.

Visit the testimonials page to see what people say about workplace mindfulness. If you would like to discuss running a session in your workplace, please just get in touch.

Ruth’s ways of explaining Mindfulness – both as a concept and as a practice - made it feel straightforward and very achievable, which was really quite inspiring.
