My Secular Mindfulness Qualifications
I strive to teach meditation in an informal, down to earth way, with humour and humility.
I am a qualified mindfulness practitioner, authorised to teach mindfulness by the Mindfulness Association; having completed their Mindfulness, Compassion, Insight, and 2-year teacher training pathway. My teaching adheres to all aspects of the UK Good Practice Guidelines and I hold a Postgraduate Degree in the Studies of Mindfulness from the University of Aberdeen.
I have taught meditation extensively for private groups, businesses, and educational institutions in both the UK and abroad.
I spend at least two weeks annually in silent meditation retreat.

What is it and why bother?
Mindfulness is a form of meditation in which you practise placing your attention on your present-moment experience. We do this non-judgementally and with an attitude of kindness and acceptance.
We spend so much of our lives lost in thought, often forgetting where we are and what we're doing. This wouldn't be much of an issue if it wasn't for the content of these thoughts. We can often find ourselves worrying about the past, anxiously anticipating the future, or conceptualising the present beyond reason.
Mindfulness helps us release the bonds of this obsessive thinking and brings us closer to the truth of what is happening moment by moment.
Mindfulness has not only hugely helped my creative practice, but it has also offered so much to me in my daily life.
I love teaching meditation, and I hope that it can be of some use to you too.

"Adam’s mindfulness course was truly amazing. Adam is clear, patient and makes you understand a way of meditating that is accessible and enjoyable. I now approach meditation in a positive way thanks to Adam and this has changed my life massively."
