Free Drop-in online Mindfulness practice sessions: 3rd Wednesday of each month 7.30-8.30pm:
Martin Summerfield and Dr Liz Tallentire (clinical psychologist teaching Mindfulness to NHS staff) are delighted to offer monthly drop-in secular mindfulness sessions. The focus will be on sharing a live guided practice led by either Martin or Liz along with some time to reflect on personal practice.
The sessions will initially be held on zoom, with the possibility of a move to in-person sessions in the Lancaster area when Covid eases. If and when sessions move to a venue there will be a request for a small contribution to cover room hire costs.
No booking is required to attended the online drop-ins but you will need to contact Martin here to get a zoom code and password that should work for recurrent sessions. Please be ready to start the session at 7.30pm.
One to one support:
I’m currently offering one to one mindfulness coaching courses online:
‘I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Martin if you are interested in exploring and applying mindfulness in your daily life” ( Senior IT manager, online one to one course autumn 2020)
If you are interested in a one to one course please contact martin here. An initial check-in discussion is offered free of charge and, where appropriate, a coached mindfulness course can be undertaken online.
There are no immediate plans to run in-person group courses until covid clears. It is useful to register an interest in future Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Courses here so as to have a record of interest should conditions allow and one to one course again.
Afternoons of mindfulness
These are currently on hold but these are usually run in the lovely River Room in Halton (nr Lancaster).
to get a flavour of what is offered …
An afternoon of guided Mindfulness practice with a general theme of self care and self compassion. The intention is to offer guided practices that nourish and support us by undertaking guided sitting, walking, lying and gentle movement.
The River Room, is a large studio space which is fully equipped with cushions, mats etc. We usually have a break mid afternoon when you will be invited to spend time next to the River Lune, cup of tea in hand – weather permitting!
Anyone with experience of meditation and Mindfulness are invited to come along too and join us. The afternoon is aimed at supporting individuals with a current personal Mindfulness practice. Participants will be in silence themselves for much of the afternoon as a range of practices are shared and as such it isn’t framed for those who are completely new to Mindfulness and meditation. Contact Martin here if you want any further information.
