What we're about

We are a community of people who study, practice and teach secular Mindfulness.

Mindfulness is used to reduce stress, help us sleep better, improve focus, be kinder to ourselves and others, improve relationships and cope with life's ups and downs.

We meet at Hinton Barn Farm which is the perfect rural setting of peace and tranquility we combine friendliness and casualness with a disciplined approach to practice. Our events are suitable for everyone.

Every Friday evening (we occasionally have to cancel) we have an hour of practice that is free and gives you the opportunity to try Mindfulness if you haven't had any experience. If you have an established practice you too are welcome and we encourage you to come along and support others.

We also run retreats, 8-week courses and special courses for pain and other particular difficulties. You are invited to join our community-of-interest to support your mental and emotional well-being. Whether you have completed an 8-week course or are simply interested in Mindfulness, everyone is very welcome. Friday evenings are free of charge and all other courses and retreats are very reasonably priced, we run on a not-for-profit basis and encourage (!) donations to help support our valuable work in the community with people who can least afford, but most need, to learn how to cope with lifes ups and downs.

We are located just outside of Brackley, near the village of Evenley.

DE-FRAZZLE WITH A SIMPLE COURSE IN MINDFULNESS

Hinton Barn

Hi, my name is David and I am a mindfulness teacher and I am starting a new eight course from Thursday the 28th of February at 7pm, just outside Brackley. Mindfulness has gone mainstream – recognised by the NHS and taught in big companies like Google, BT, HSBC - because the research shows that it is really effective at helping people to cope better with stress, anxiety, depression and physical pain. If you’re feeling frazzled, this might be something to consider. My training and accreditation is with Breathworks (www.breathworks-mindfulness.org.uk). The price of the course is £70, which includes course material, a workbook, relevant downloads and plenty of tea and biccies. We hold these courses at Hinton Barn Farm which is just outside Brackley. If you can’t afford the full price, Hinton Barn Farm offers discounts so that no one is excluded from learning this fantastic tool. To join in, you need to save a place by contacting me on:[masked] or [masked].

Friday night calm - a group practice

Hinton Barn

• What we'll do Attending a regular group will help you to embed your mindfulness practice. And. If you have never tried mindfulness, this is a great way to dip your toe in the water. Mindfulness is a range of tools to help calm the mind, bring you into the present moment, set aside unhelpful thoughts and judgements, generate compassion and generally bring joy into your life. What's not to like about all that! Plus we offer these sessions on a donation basis - just pay what you can afford. • What to bring No need to bring a thing. Just an open inquisitive mind and sense of humour. • Important to know
