Mindfulness Courses with Vibha Donne
Mindfulness is a skill. This is what the ancient teachers of mindfulness tell us and what modern research in psychology has shown. The wonderful thing is that this skill, just like driving or dancing, can be learned and it can stay with you for a lifetime.
Mindfulness gives us the capacity to be calm, open and aware in the present moment, it is non-judgemental and always curious about experience.
Mindfulness stems originally from Buddhist meditation practices that have been developed as secular, evidence-based techniques shown to be effective in improving wellbeing and reducing stress, depression, experience of pain and illness.
The courses are taught in a supportive and friendly group setting. You will learn the foundation skills of mindfulness, compassion, and meditation, and how to apply them in your life in a way that really makes a difference.
Courses can be adapted in length and content.

"Vibha has delivered her material in a very thoughtful and inclusive way. She is very good at communicating / people skills. Vibha's calm tone and body language really allowed me to fully engage with the course."
"I really enjoyed the way Vibha taught the course. I felt she was very natural and had a real sense of her mindful presence & gentleness, which allowed me to feel safe in the group. She was very 'herself' and responsive and has a very calm voice."
"Very relieved at the start of the course to discover that Vibha has a clear structure and carefully and gently keeps the sessions on course using group rules that benefit everyone. The leading of meditations was very effective - her voice is very good to listen to. She is very perceptive and shows that she listens to what people say and notices how they respond and reflects this in her response to members of the group."

"Finally understanding that thoughts happen and that's normal and ok, slowing down and noticing things outside me and within, the power of being in a supportive group, self-kindness."
“I'm already noticing big changes in myself. Several members of my family and friends have noticed as well, and commented on how much happier I seem. It's amazing, and I feel so much more 'alive'. I'm so glad I came on your course - it's one of the best things I've ever done."
"Vibha has been brilliant. Human. Funny. Explained things well. Focused and persistent in pursuing understanding (I.e making me think and doing it kindly). She has a great voice in the meditations."
