We are so pleased to have recently affiliated with Plum Village UK. Although we are secular and Plum Village is a monastic order, our values align.
If you feel frazzled or if you feel there are things in your life that could benefit from you knowing how to be calmer and happier, we run mindfulness groups and classes at our Center which is just outside of Brackley.
Mindfulness works for people who are struggling to keep up with the constant demands of the modern world. It can help with building resilience at critical periods: from couples preparing for a new baby, to children and young people at school and college; and from adults in their work and family life, to older adults and those who care for them when they become mentally or physically infirm. We also work with people who have chronic pain as well as people with serious illnesses.
The benefits of mindfulness have been proven by clinical trials and work continues to explore the implications of this, extending the approach to other disorders, using brain imaging techniques together with experimental cognitive science, to learn how mindfulness has its effects, and which practices are best for whom.
Our commitment is to teach
mindfulness to anyone who needs it and we run on a pay-what-you-can-afford
basis, so no one is excluded.
