"I thought the course uses very simple means to feel connected to the outer world, e.g. looking people in the eye and being comfortable, and simple tokens of gratitude and how good you feel afterwards. I also liked Fidelma’s demeanour – very calm and kind, which in itself projects into the class and encouraged me to be more calm in general."

Loving Kindness: Living with Kindness Course 
While we all have the capacity to live from our hearts and to be a loving presence in the world, this is often undermined by the barriers we put up to protect ourselves. This workshop will teach the Loving Kindness meditation practice, which develops the ability to connect to your heart, by bringing a gentle, kindly awareness to your emotional responses to yourself and others. We will also explore other ways of bringing loving kindness into your everyday life, by simple practices that develop positive emotions such as gratitude, generosity and compassion. 
Suitable both for beginners to meditation and for more experienced meditators.

"The course gave me self-focus, empowerment, the ability to stay in the present and to slow down thought processes….Breathing and the power of using it and developing it to improve quality in the day-to-day course of life. The course was perfect for me, very easy and gentle and non-intrusive."
