Mindful Eating, Mindful Living Workshop at Bamford Haybarn, Daylesford Farm

We have a workshop coming up on Saturday March the 7th 2015 at Bamford Haybarn Spa in Gloucestershire, a full day of exploring different mindful eating practices in a welcoming and supportive environment.  

The theme of day is around Mindful Eating, Mindful Living, and the workshop will be an opportunity to step out of the busyness of everyday life and to gently focus ourselves on bringing back enjoyment and ease to our day-to-day experiences around food.  We will be spending the day in the lovely, light-filled studio at the Haybarn Spa, the perfect environment to explore our eating experiences and habits in a spacious and unhurried way.

Lunchtime will be the opportunity to put it all into practice and experience a mindful meal, away from distractions and hurry. These meals are a favourite part of our workshops and normally we ask everybody attending to bring a dish to share.  This time we are doing things differently and lunch will be provided by the award-winning Daylesford Farm Shop next door - it should be a real treat, and means that all you’ll need to bring on the day is yourself.  I'd love to see some of you there!

The workshop finishes at 4pm, so plenty of time to pick up some goodies to take home from the Farm Shop next door.  

More information about the Haybarn Spa and Daylesford Organic Farm on their websites.

An introduction to mindfulness, a whole day workshop in Oxford

I'm delighted to be collaborating with mindfulness teacher Alicia Loreto-Gardner for a one-day mindfulness workshop in Oxford

Details of the workshop are as follows:

Introducing mindfulness, a whole day workshop in Oxford, September 14th 2013

Mindfulness can help us to manage stress and anxiety in a positive way, to cope with the pace and demands of modern life and to feel happier and healthier. The practices are simple to learn and can become part of every day activities such as eating and breathing. The workshop will be a gentle introduction to the practice of mindfulness in a relaxed and friendly environment during which you will have the opportunity to:

  • Stop the 'doing' and rushing of daily life and give yourself permission to just 'be' mindfully, in a tranquil, friendly and supportive environment
  • Explore the concept of Mindfulness from an experiential approach as well as some of its principles and benefits.
  • Learn some simple skills to take away and use after the workshop
  • Find out about future opportunities to further and deepen what you have experienced and practiced during the workshop.
