Victoria Park Avenue
Our mission is to be an effective response to the suffering which we see arise from stress, anxiety and pain. We do this through a broad and creative secular mindfulness programme which includes Breathworks mindfulness based pain and stress management courses; compassion is at the heart of the work. In addition to our health related work we also work to bring mindfulness approaches into education through the Mindfulness in schools project and into the wider community. Recognising our intimate connection to the natural world, we include nature based workshops and retreats into our programme to support well-being. We are committed to an evidence-based approach and use and strive to contribute to research. We practice, teach and study together, working cooperatively to provide support, challenge and inspiration. We provide professional development and supervision for other mindfulness trainers.
We strive to embody mindfulness of ourselves, others and the environment in our work and seek to always ground our work in our personal practice.
We will work to make our courses accessible to all including those on the lowest incomes. Our work will be guided by our ethical framework which is rooted in the Buddhist precepts and cooperative values.
