"I realise I have always seen myself as a doer and felt it’s important to have constant things to do and lists of things for the future. I didn’t allow myself time to be and that means thoughts came in when I was doing other things like sleeping. This has been such a positive experience. It has left me wanting to do more."
Renowned 5-time Author & International Teacher
These courses are run by renowned five-time author and international teacher Suryacitta Malcolm Smith. Suryacitta is known for his simplicity and clarity of teaching.
People come to us for a variety of reasons.

Feel there is still something missing
Be experiencing existential issues
Want some spiritual mentoring
May want to change certain habits such as being a perfectionist or a people pleaser
Or just want ot talk about anything on your mind where you will not be judged
Some can learn from a book but most people and this includes Suryacitta and Gaynor learnt it from joining in a course many years ago, run by good experienced teachers.
Starting a meditation practice
When we plant a young tree it needs support, it needs tending to and caring for until it can stand alone without support, and becomes self sufficient. Learning meditation is similar. A good guide/teacher is invaluable. Though very simple, mindfulness meditation is subtle, but our minds are complicated. A good guide has walked the path you are walking and he or she can guide you through the errors and cul-de-sacs that you will definitely encounter.
The quality of your mind affects the quality of your life which includes your health. If we want to grow healthy plants we nourish the earth in which we plant them and all the plants and flowers benefit. They are brighter, stronger and healthier. In the same way mindfulness nourishes your mind. So the whole of your life benefits including your emotional, physical and mental health. Of course we are not talking perfect health just better health.
Most people start out in meditation by trying to blank their mind, or to calm their thoughts. This is understandable because overthinking can make us unhappy, to say the least. However, through guidance from a good guide or teacher you will come to see that what keeps all this thinking active is your belief, involvement and opposing them. When this begins to be seen your thinking calms down all by itself because you stop "fuelling" them. Then the attention which was taken up by all that thinking is free to move into your senses and to appreciate the moment and all that life brings.
Absolutely. Gaynor and Suryacitta share with you tools and techniques to help you unhook form anxious thoughts, and to ease the feeling of anxiety in the body. Through a regular practice of mindfulness we can then come to see that we don’t need to believe all our thoughts and experience rest and ease in our lives. We also become more at ease with uncomfortable emotions.
Between them Suryacitta and Gaynor have over 45 years of experience of mindfulness meditation. At Mindfulness CIC we run not just courses but silent retreats of various lengths to assist this process. However, Suryacitta and Gaynor will show you how to go deeper with your mindfulness in your everyday life. Every moment is your teacher if we know to use theses moments. In the tradition which Suryacitta trained in they say that the world is a mirror reflecting yourself back, and if we know how to look into the mirror of life we grow and grow and experience the joy and wonder of life.
"Just to say that your mindfulness course has had a greater impact on my life than anything I have done before.”
