Breathworks Mindfulness Courses


Barry and Cate have been delivering Breathworks Mindfulness for Health and Well Being and Mindfulness for Stress courses in Bristol for several years.  This will be another Mindfulness for Health and Well-being course, teaching you how to work with injury, pain, stress or anxiety by learning about Meditation, Mindfulness and Body Scan, Mindful Movement, Compassion and Kindness, Breath Awareness, exploring the Human Condition and practising Mindfulness for Daily Life.  

It is this last area we are really keen to explore on this course;  how to bring what you have learned about Mindfulness into your every day life, so it is a vital part of how you live day to day, naturally supporting everything you are doing, thinking and feeling.  Every day Mindfulness!  

The course includes 7 sessions running on a mix of Friday evenings and Saturday mornings, finishing with a whole Practice day together.   You will be asked to commit to attending all the dates of the course, unless there is an emergency or illness, so please check your availability, holidays, half terms, etc. before registering.

We really hope you will want to join us!

My work as a Counsellor has always been informed by my practice as a Buddhist and the various Meditation methods I have learned along the way.  I trained with the University of the West of England as a CBT Practitioner and, along the way, began to find out about and practice Mindfulness.  It seemed to open very effective new doors for me as a Counsellor.  I then discovered that some Buddhist friends, Vidyamala Burch and Sona Fricker, were running Breathworks, an organisation based in Manchester who are passionate about providing courses and teacher training in mindfulness-based pain and illness management to help people change their lives and ease the suffering associated with pain, illness and stress. 

I trained for 3 years with Breathworks and was accredited as a Breathworks Mindfulness trainer in May 2014.  This Mindfulness training was life changing;  synthesising my personal practice as a Buddhist and taking my CBT and general Counselling practice into very exciting and new directions. `

I run occasional 8-week Mindfulness for Health or Mindfulness for Stress courses in Bristol alongside a co-Teacher, Cate Peel.  We are planning to run another course this Autumn 2018 in North Bristol.  The cost will be by donation.  If you think you would be interested in attending this course please email:
