Mindfulness Courses

The Sky Garden offers one day and one and a half day mindfulness courses in the beautiful Hampshire countryside, in a Grade II listed house on the edge of Odiham village in a unique setting. Groups are kept small to encourage an intimate experience, conducive to friendly discussion. Accommodation and breakfast is available to those choosing the one and a half day course. With the belief that a healthy life creates a healthy mind, I have a real passion for cooking delicious, locally sourced and home grown food that is both delicious and nourishing; the healing power of food is a huge part of the Sky Garden's approach to mindfulness.

You will have the opportunity to meet people who are also curious about mindfulness. You will practice short meditations and simple mindfulness exercises in an informal setting. There will be time spent as a group, learning mindfulness techniques, and also some time spent alone with which to practice and reflect. A delicious nutritious lunch will be provided and a chance to spend a relaxed day away from the bustle of life in a tranquil setting.

The aim of the courses is to help you begin to explore mindfulness and how you may apply it to your everyday life. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
