  • Increased enjoyment of life
  • Increased ability to be calm and relaxed
  • Increased control of emotions such as anger and anxiety
  • Improved sleep quality
  • Fewer feelings of anxiety, pain, depression and compulsion

Who Should Attend

This course is suitable for beginners, as well as those wishing to refresh their mindfulness practice. It is suitable for those of all faiths and none. Our course participants come from a wide range of backgrounds. Most of our participants are keen to learn new ways to look after their own well-being and to identify positive responses to challenging situations.

Proposed Commitment

For this course to be effective, we recommended that you commit to attending all six sessions and also to a minimum of 20 mins daily practice for five days each week.

Creating a stable and strong practice of mindfulness is a habit that needs regular, ideally daily, practice. If you know ahead of time that you can not make a session then please discuss with Vari so that you can understand the content of the missed session.

Course Schedule

This course is taught over 6 weeks from Monday 11th September to Monday 16th October. Each class is 2 hours long and the class timings are 9:30am – 11:30am.

Course Leader

The course leader for this course is Vari McLuskie. Vari first encountered mindfulness at a retreat 27 years ago and immediately felt peaceful and at home with this practice. As a result Vari committed to putting mindfulness practice at the centre of her life, applying it to all aspects of her life – work, family, health, social. Vari has experienced first hand the healing and transformational aspects of this practice and is continually inspired by hearing the positive changes it brings to others. Vari practices mindfulness daily and attends at least ten days of retreat a year. She has been teaching mindfulness for over 12 years both locally and nationally.
