WHAT WE OFFER

Three key ways we can work together

Whether you are interested in a one-off talk for an internal event or a packaged course, we will find the solution that best meets your needs.

Virtual Meditation Training Program

We have developed three month-long training modules which equip participants with the tools to establish their own practice, explaining how and why these tools work and building up to powerful techniques for resilience and personal growth.

Talks and Presentations

The field of meditation research has been growing rapidly over the past 30 years. The findings are exciting and worth being aware of. Working in the field ourselves we are well placed to deliver informative talks that shed light on how meditation changes the mind and brain.

One-to-One Leadership Coaching

Whether you are just starting out or have practiced regularly for years, discussing your practice in detail can help accelerate your understanding and progress. These sessions allow us to get to know each other and make personal recommendations.

OUR CLIENTS

Testimonials

Learning how to become aware of, and control, the mind can have a profound positive impact on how we experience life. Tools learned in the workplace can be a gift that participants can benefit from both personally and professionally.

I just wanted to say thank you so much for today. I have never practised meditation before. The most powerful thing which I was left with was the information Mark took us through with regards to panic attacks. I have suffered from panic attacks intermittently over the years. No doctor or practitioner I have seen in the past has ever described it the way Mark did.

This session has given me hope that stress at work can be managed and I believe that a regular session would make me happier and more productive.

Big 4 Consultancy

Really good way to feel more valued at work. I have to say I was a little sceptical at first but the sessions are well run and I’m finding them useful – so thanks for setting these up.

Big 4 Consultancy

This was one of the best sessions I have ever had at work and I feel like I would benefit hugely if this was an ongoing activity work provided. I feel very keen to further explore meditation and its benefits. Thank you for organising!
