  • ~ Learn simple and highly effective mindfulness techniques to ease stress, soothe your mind and heal your body.
  • ~ Enjoy 2 days of complete silence to help your mind drop into meditation more effortlessly.
  • ~ Practice gentle flow yoga each afternoon to open your body and release tension.

Michael is a 20 year practitioner of meditation who has been leading courses, workshops and retreats for the past 15 years. He teaches with a blend of depth and humour that makes learning this timeless art easy and enjoyable.

Blending the best of the traditional meditation systems from the East with modern science, the Calm Living mindfulness programme is a safe and effective system for everyone.

You are taken through a range of techniques that eventually blend into a complete practice you can take with you into life. These are such invaluable tools for living in a modern stress filled world.

Michael describes meditation as the simple art of bringing your mind home for short moments, repeated many times.

That's it.
In learning this artform, your brain changes, your physiology changes and your awareness shifts. You open into an entirely different side of your being.
