Our Mindfulness Based Living Courses, held in Galashiels, Hawick, Kelso, and Berwick-Upon-Tweed will introduce you to the basic principles of mindfulness and support you in developing the core skill of mindfulness: a way of paying attention, on purpose, non-judgmentally to what goes on in the present moment within your body, mind and the world around you.
Mindfulness is a natural capacity of the mind which helps you to be aware of the present moment, in a non-judgemental way, instead of worrying about the past or future. It promotes a way of being that helps us to take better care of ourselves and lead healthier lives. It also enables us to access inner resources for coping effectively with stress, difficulty and illness.
It is recommended that you attend a Peer 2 Peer Mindfulness Introductory Session before starting an 8-week course.
At this introductory session you will receive answers to the questions – What is Mindfulness? and, Why Practice It? - and a lot more. You will also obtain an opportunity to experience mindfulness with some basic practices.
Please see our EVENTS LISTING for the start date of the next Peer 2 Peer Mindfulness Based Living Course.

Past Participant Testimonials
"This mindfulness course was truly a life changing experience for me. It has taught me ways to help me cope with my negative thoughts and painful emotions resulting in my perpetual anxiety and panic attacks now being a distant memory. My life has so much more positivity and happiness now. Thank you Brian!"
P. ~ Kelso
"The changes in how I view my severe illness have been profound since joining the course in Hawick. I have overcome my anger at the illness and my perceived sense of loss of my identity. I would like to thank you for enabling me to become aware of myself and find peace and calm in my life."
D. ~ Hawick
"I run my own business and joined the course because I couldn't stop worrying all the time about all the things that I thought could go wrong in my life. I am really grateful as Brian's patient and kind guidance throughout the course has given me the ability to notice when I am overthinking things and come back to the inner peace of the present moment. I now enjoy running my business, being with my family and I sleep at night!
