• Taking the MBSR teacher training with Kathy was a great decision for me. I lacked confidence in my abilities coming into the course. Kathy's skillful and mindful approach to teaching enabled me to build my confidence and skills guiding mindfulness. Doing the course also strengthened my own practice and I can live daily with more awareness moment by moment. I will continue my training with Kathy and look forward to it. Anyone who is considering teaching mindfulness can be assured of the highest standards when learning from Kathy.

  • About the Training

    With a maximum of 12 students to enable us to fully support your development, the days are a mixture of practice, workshops and practice teaching, with plenty of breaks to enjoy this area of outstanding natural beauty on the Ox Mountains overlooking the countryside below Kesh Mountain and Knocknashee in the distance.

    You will be in one of 4 high-quality and beautiful, passive-design 2-bedroom self-contained wooden en suite eco-cabins. Nestled in the woodlands surrounding the centre, this is the perfect place to sit on your private balcony to enjoy the picturesque countryside and the abundance of wild nature.

    Each bedroom has either a double bed or twin beds with high-quality sheets, towels, and duvets. A newly built kitchen and dining area provide all you need for a comfortable and enjoyable stay but don't worry, delicious home-cooked vegetarian food is provided.
