Then please consider setting up a new Mindfulness and Meditation group. 

Jon Kabat Zinn - sometimes referred to as the Godfather of modern mindfulness defines mindfulness as: “The awareness that emerges through paying attention on purpose, in the present moment, and non judgmentally to the unfolding of experience moment by moment.”

I have put together 2 documents to help which I hope you find useful. One is the 'Practicalities of setting up a Mindfulness Group' and the other 'U3A Mindfulness Resources' to help you.

Please email with any questions. I’ll do my best to answer them.

With all good wishes in finding that Inner Silence, Space and Peace.
