mindful compassion courses in north London

8 week compassion-based courses

led by Lokadhi Lloyd and Korina Ioannou

mindful compassion courses in London

These mindful compassion courses help you:

Release your own potential for self-care!
You can move towards a more meaningful life, greater contentment and social harmony.

Do you typically respond to difficulties in your life by:

  • criticising yourself, feeling shame?
  • experiencing fear?
  • blaming others?
  • feeling overwhelmed, isolated, alone?
  • avoiding difficult feelings?

Rather than fighting - or trying to avoid - difficult feelings, we can learn to be compassionate towards our own experience, and so move towards greater peace in our everyday lives.

Both mindfulness and compassion harness our capacity to alleviate our own suffering - and our sensitivity to the suffering of others - they can help free us from destructive thoughts, behaviours and emotions.

This 8-week mindful compassion course runs on 8 consecutive Friday mornings from 10.45 am-1.15 pm in the heart of Islington, north London. It brings together the ancient practices of mindfulness and compassion-based approaches - both of which are validated through evidence-based contemporary research.
