Mindful Compassion Graduate Course with Annie

What is Mindfulness and how can it help?


Mindfulness is now recognised by doctors and psychologists as a powerful tool for enhancing wellbeing and reducing everyday life stress, as well as anxiety and depression.  It can also can help us to appreciate life more, improve our relationships and be more effective with tasks and activities.


Mindfulness involves a particular way of giving our attention to our present-moment experience, which anyone can practice.  Mindfulness can help reduce worrying and fretting, or churning over’ problems in a way that makes us mentally go round in circles, or get upset time and again by the same triggers. It can also increase our enjoyment of life and our appreciation of the things that matter most to us.


Can we train to become more Compassionate?


Absolutely! Research into training in compassion, starting with self-compassion, shows that it helps us to be happier, more optimistic, have more fulfilling relationships, cope better with adversity and have more self-respect and acceptance of ourselves and others.



Mindfulness Courses (open to all)


Learn Mindfulness in Hove (open to all) Our next 8-week mindfulness course will be in September 2020. Book early to take advantage of our 10% early-bird discount.


At the Tree of Life Centre, we run the internationally recognised 'gold standard' 8-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course. MBSR was originally developed by John Kabat-Zinn to help people manage the stress of extreme health conditions, but it’s now used very widely to help anyone reduce everyday life stress and anxiety and live life more fully.  The course is taught by Annie Akasati McAuley or Dr Carolyn Drake.



Mindfulness-based Compassion Courses (for people who have completed a mindfulness course or have a regular, established meditation practice)  


CANCELLED -Mindfulness-based Compassionate Living (MBCL) 8-week course with Annie Akasati McAuley - Starting 23rd April 2020. For those who have completed a mindfulness course.


Mindfulness is now recognised by doctors and psychologists as a powerful tool for enhancing wellbeing and reducing everyday life stress, as well as anxiety and depression.  It can also can help us to appreciate life more, improve our relationships and be more effective with tasks and activities.


What is compassion and how do we cultivate this heart-opening quality, for ourselves and those around us? If you have previously completed an 8-week mindfulness course such as MBSR or MBCT and would like to deepen your mindfulness practice while discovering new approaches for cultivating positive emotion, this evidence-based course could be for you. As well as reconnecting with the core themes of mindfulness, participants will be further introduced a range of new practices for opening the heart to kindness, compassion and joy. We will also explore what gets in the way of these kind responses, towards ourselves and others. The course includes opportunities for discussion and sharing in the group and introduces relevant theory and science.


Annie has been practicing mindfulness and compassion meditations for nearly 4 decades and has taught these core practices for over 20 years. For further details / queries, please get in touch with Annie on [email protected] or 07795 562483.


Comments from MBCL course participants:

"An essential follow-up to the mindfulness course"

"The course allowed me to fill my own cup"  

"I loved the more imaginative practices...and looking at the science of our brains: why react as we do to things -and that it's not our fault!"

"I appreciated the way the course leaders remained non-judgemental and compassionate throughout"

"I've gained many useful tools to benefit myself and the others around me through the compassionate practices"



4-week Mindful Compassion Graduate Course with Annie Akasati McAuley -

Starting 18th June 2020 For those who have completed a mindfulness course.


Refresh your mindfulness practice and learn new approaches to cultivating calmer, more positive states of mind. In these courses we revisit the 8-week courses and introduce new themes and practices, for example, approaches for cultivating self-care, kindness and compassion. There will be support for renewing and continuing home practice as well as opportunities to explore whatever themes and questions are 'live' for course participants.


Comments from Mindful Compassion Graduate course participants:  


"Inspiring. A reminder of what is available to us, when we take notice"

"A useful refresher, reminding me that kindness is free - including offering it to myself. A genuine, pleasantly calm and intimate escape in itself"

"Exceeded what I was expecting... Interesting, soothing, relaxing, nurturing"
