Establishing a regular formal mindfulness practice is often regarded the most difficult aspect of undertaking mindfulness training. And interestingly research also shows us it is the most beneficial thing as well! We therefore run practice support groups once a month for people who have completed an eight week course.
These are ‘closed groups’ of regular people who find the commitment of a monthly group really supports them to embed learning and keep their mindfulness and self-compassion alive. We have a theme for each month which deepens understanding of a particular aspect of learning. We do plenty of guided practice during the session as well as giving time to explore the monthly theme through experiential exercise and discussion.
There are currently two groups on different Monday mornings (usually third and fourth Mondays of the month), and a new monthly online group (usually the second Wednesday evening of the month).
Ali Lambie researched participants’ experiences of these groups as part of her master’s degree.

The cost for these committed groups is £15 a month, payable by standing order. Joining one of these groups supports your commitment to continue with practice and also means you will be part of a consistent group of people who you’ll get to know better as you meet together each month.
