Mindfulness - Taster Sessions & Classes
We run regular taster sessions from our centre in Brockenhurst which give you a 90-minute introduction to the principles and practice of Mindfulness.
We also offer introductory workshops at Chewton Glen Hotel, Walkford and The Retreat New Forest, Hinton.
Led by our wonderful teachers, these short sessions introduce some of the most fundamental aspects of Mindfulness in a gentle, welcoming atmosphere.
A great way to find out more if you thinking about joining us on an eight week course, but not quite ready to take the plunge.
"[Our] Teachers were brilliant at creating and facilitating a relaxed, calm and fun atmosphere where we could learn and develop"

During the session you will learn what underpins the practice of mindfulness - as we explore how we enhance our awareness of all the senses, becoming less caught up with the past, and worried about the future.
We will discover more about how to foster a non-judgemental and compassionate attitude toward our experience. You teacher will also do a bit mindful 'myth-busting' as we discuss some of the misconceptions there are around mindfulness practice - such as it being all about 'getting rid' of thoughts or always being relaxed.
As well as discussion, we also undertake a number of short group practices which aim to demystify meditation and give a real taste of the benefits that Mindfulness can bring.
As well as running regular taster sessions at our New Forest base in Brockenhurst and our workshops at The Retreat New Forest in Hinton and Chewton Glen Hotel in Walkford, we are always happy to arrange private tasters, either with you as an individual, or for your business, school, group or other organisation.
We can tailor these sessions for children and families, as well as adults. Please do get in touch to discuss your needs.
