With Mindful Edinburgh we can practice mindfulness wherever we are
Mindful Edinburgh offer excellent opportunities for learning about and practising mindfulness in Edinburgh and wherever you are. Courses and learning events include 8 week courses, individual courses and coaching in mindfulness, mindfulness for teams and organisations as well as more specialist events from time to time. 8 week courses include a free MP3 player with guided audios and a 60 page full colour handbook (in an engaging easy to read double column magazine format). 8 week courses also include an orientation session, a practice day and a follow up half day of practice. This should be basic good practice in mindfulness courses, however increasingly such offerings seem to be outstandingly excellent if indeed almost unique in Edinburgh.
Mindful Edinburgh offer courses in mindfulness in central Edinburgh venues which are comfortable and support your learning process. Mindful Edinburgh courses are easily accessible, grounded in practical experience, and thoroughly scientifically verified while also having heart and lightness. Mindful Edinburgh draw primarily from the work of Emeritus Professor of Medicine Jon Kabat Zinn, who is generally acknowledged as being the main contemporary innovator and teacher of mindfulness through Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction. Mindful Edinburgh are also trained to deliver MIndfulness Based Cognitive Therapy and MIndfulness Based Living Courses. Mindful Edinburgh appreciates that some mindfulness courses are taught by people in religious organisations or in religious settings. Our courses take place in non-religious settings and references are not made to any religions. This makes the courses suitable for people of all religions or none.

Taking periods of 'time out' to practice mindfulness in formal ways is as invaluable for learning mindfulness as it is for any skills or aptitudes we are developing, whether learning a musical instrument or going to the gym. With Mindful Edinburgh we are especially focussed on learning to be able to practice mindfulness whenever we choose and wherever we are, as it suits us.
