Mindfulness for Depression 

We all want to know how to be calmer, or as somebody said to me recently, just how do I become a calmer person? I think, particularly when we are suffering from depression or feeling stressed, we want to feel calmer and more contented. Exploring meditation for depression is the first step to soothing your mind and untangling the difficult and painful thoughts that come with it. Mindfulness for depression is a helpful method for unlocking the power of your mind and refocusing your thought patterns. Our courses and retreats in meditation for depression are designed to equip you with the tools for a brighter future and to gain a better understanding of your mind.

Meditation for Depression 

"Mindfulness is a proven way of helping with depression, at least mild to moderate depression." 

John Kabat Zinn is the secular founding father of Mindfulness in the west. He pioneered research in 1970s into depression and the benefits that mindfulness for depression can bring from his role at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. Most mindfulness research is now derived from this root. 
When we are depressed we are locked into the mind and tend to feel a sense of hopelessness, worthlessness and often guilt to name a few. What we don’t realise is that these are stories we are telling ourselves and with guided meditation for depression we can begin to get a glimpse of what is really happening and begin to free yourselves from these stories. Once we begin to see how the mind is working we naturally become calmer and feel more at ease.

"I had not heard of you before. A friend posted about the retreat & I was in need of some silent time with the collective energy of awareness. 
"So I signed up... very happy I did, a powerful retreat for me. Scientists tell us that the sense of smell can trigger very early memories. I am wondering now what the influence of a home town accent is? From one Smoggy to another."
