Mindfulness Based Living Courses (MLBC)
- Mindfulness is a faculty of the mind which is dormant until it is used, like a muscle. When we strengthen this muscle, through learning mindfulness skills, we are more able to look within us and find out what’s really going on inside.
The good news is that we all have the capacity to practice mindfulness. Once we’ve learned a few basic skills and techniques, we can do it by ourselves, whenever we want.
In so doing, we begin to understand how we cope with life’s ups and downs and, if we want, to become less reactive and demanding of ourselves. If we can be more open, curious and kind, towards what unfolds in our lives, thinking of it less as a relentless struggle, but more of a series of unique processes, then we can learn to accept what comes up in our experience. And if we can do this, we are well on the way to living more mindful lives.

Specialist LGBT Plus support – enrich your life - in 2021
This Kind Space is committed to an ongoing and developing equality and diversity policy in relation to all those who register for our Mindfulness Courses or Sessions.
Here, I offer a safe, welcoming, confidential environment for the LGBTQI Plus community, where you can mindfully explore and investigate what may lie behind some of the various challenges you might encounter.
It is my firm belief that as human beings, regardless of our sexual or gender identity, we all share basic survival needs, hopes and fears, along with a desire for happiness, joy and contentment in life.
Unfortunately there are still many in our culture who, for myriad reasons, remain plagued by fear and suspicion of those whom they choose to perceive or mistreat as ‘other’, actively or even passively expressing anger or aggression towards people who don’t appear to fit their own social ‘norm’. You may have been on the receiving end of this? Perhaps you’re suffering from related anxiety, fear, crippling self-esteem resulting in your finding it difficult to function healthily and reasonably happily in ordinary day-to-day life?
Partners, Parents and Siblings
Crucially I extend this separate invitation to the husbands, wives, partners, parents, siblings and significant others in the lives of the above.
Drawing on my personal and professional experience I am acutely aware that when a person decides to come out and/or transition, it is not only that person themselves, who experiences massive change in their lives. Those immediately close to the person, are also greatly affected and yet to date, their needs, as valid as those of their loved-one, have been largely sidelined and in many cases underestimated. Mindful awareness coupled with self-care and self-compassion is key to a person’s well-being if they are struggling in any way, to come terms with what can be a deeply confusing and de-stablising experience for all involved.
By investing your energies in my experiential mindfulness meditation training within this informed and healing context, you will begin to notice, recognise, explore, understand and learn how to nurture your own needs with curiosity, kindness and compassion rather than with feelings of possible self-hatred and fear.
As your awareness and self-acceptance develops, you may also find that your relationships with others too, are greatly enhanced.
