Meditation & Mindfulness Courses
8 weeks to a better life
As an experienced meditator since 1997 and Zenways trained meditation and mindfulness teacher, my goal is to help you establish a practice that will truly deliver life changing results. Did you know that 30 minutes of mindfulness meditation a day will boost your health, empathy, joy, intelligence and creativity, as well as reduce your stress, anxiety and depression? It also helps us develop concentration, focus and a deeper awareness of how things really are in our lives; switching us from auto-pilot mode to being fully-engaged creators of our own health, happiness and fulfilment.
Beyond that, it can expand your awareness of the miracle of life itself and put you deeply in touch with the essence of who you are!
At Zen Skills we offer 2 different courses, based in the centuries-old Zen Buddhist lineage, that provide you with the tools, support and encouragement to make the most of your life, to whichever level you wish to explore. Despite the practices we teach having their roots in Buddhism, these courses are fundamentally secular in nature and can be adopted by practitioners of any religion or none at all, it makes no difference as this is all about direct experience, not something depending on prior beliefs or notions: Zen master Koun Yamada (1907-1989) put it this way; “at the core, this experience is not adorned with any thought or philosophy. It is merely a fact, an experienced fact, in the same way that the taste of tea is a fact. A cup of tea has no thought, no idea, no philosophy. It tastes the same to Buddhists as it does to Christians. There is no difference at all.”
These 8 week courses are run throughout the year online on Zoom as well as locally in East Grinstead, West Sussex. Take a minute to look at our "Course Options" to see which one suits you, then check out "Dates & Fees" and contact us today. If no suitable dates are listed please get in touch anyway, as we may be able to arrange a future course with dates and times that suit you!
Mindfulness in the workplace
There is great demand for meditation and mindfulness teaching these days. Not only individuals are seeking out the meditation teachings, many big organisations including companies like Google and Microsoft are aware of the benefits of meditation and encouraging its practice at work.
It stands to reason. Not only does meditation practice make you more relaxed, focused and stress-resistant; over time you become increasingly efficient. It makes sense for you and for the wider world. Our eight-week courses for individuals or companies, provides a framework which allows the life-changing benefits of meditation to be assimilated and practised in a way that can lead to lasting well-being, enhanced health and expanded consciousness.
The practices have already been taught in many organisations including BAE Systems, Support 2 Recovery, Oxford University, Kids Company, Imperial College, Westminster University, Isle of Wight Council, Hammersmith Hospital, amongst many others.
