​“Come, come, Whoever you are. 

Wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving. It doesn't matter. 

Ours is not a caravan of despair. 

Come, even if you have broken your vows a thousand times. 

​Come, yet again, Come, Come.” ​

– Rumi​ (Sufi Poet)

Here at Mindfullybeing, we offer a range of classes, courses and workshops in mindfulness training. We could think of the practice of mindfulness as exercising a skill in observing our present experience with an attitude of acceptance, appreciation and an openness to learning healthier responses to challenging situations.  See more in "What is Mindfulness?" 


We have a team of dedicated teachers, who have each been trained professionally through Bangor and Oxford Universities to offer instruction in mindfulness and who follow the Good Practice Guidelines for Teaching Mindfulness. Mindfullybeing is also a member of the UK Network for Mindfulness-Based Teacher Training Organisations. Since 2009, we have offered mindfulness training to thousands of people with a positive impact on their lives. Our various classes and courses are all designed to help you manage stress more effectively and engage more confidently and creatively with the world.  (Read Testimonials) 


The practice of mindfulness is now well researched and has been proven to be effective in not just reducing stress levels but in helping us to communicate better with each other and to live happier and more productive lives. Courses such as Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy are now being used in mainstream health and education institutions worldwide. In the UK, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is included in the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidelines. The Mindfulness All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) now promotes the use of mindfulness in workplaces, schools and universities.

The situation with the COVID-19 virus is changing daily. We have taken the step to cancel all in person drop ins and courses. All our scheduled courses will continue to run, but these will now run online. We will be running a series of new online courses as well as drop in sessions which you can learn more about and book here.

We hope that you're staying healthy and calm in these turbulent times. 

Please get in touch with us if you have questions, or if you need any help or support.

Kindest regards,
Dr. Avinash Bansode
