27 Mar 2021 - 1 May 2021


£30 – £160

We warmly invite you to this brand new, mindfulness course for neurodiversity (including ADHD, PTSD and neurodivergent life experiences) – from the comfort of your own home, held on Zoom.

Sylvia Clare and David Hughes are experts in neurodiversity and mindfulness; they offer this course based on their lived experiences of the benefits of mindfulness practice, rooted in the tradition Thich Nhat Hanh (often referred to as ‘the Father of Mindfulness’, nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Martin Luther King Jr. and author of numerous best-selling books).

In the 6 sessions, you can learn how to make the practice of mindfulness work for you; you may find that the course helps to ease painful thoughts and emotions, and you will also be encouraged to experiment with mindfulness practices to bring joy into your daily life.

We hope you can join us. There will be a maximum group size of 12 people, for a light-hearted and deep exploration of mindfulness together, in a friendly, welcoming atmosphere.

This is a live, interactive course, not recorded sessions to download.

About the leaders

Sylvia Clare and David Hughes recently published their new book entitled ‘Living and Loving with ADHD and Neurodiversity‘ and the course will draw on much of the wisdom from this book (you don’t need to purchase it for this course, but it helps!)

Sylvia Clare and David Hughes take great inspiration from Thich Nhat Hanh’s expression: “enjoy your practice” i.e. making mindfulness work for each unique individual, so it can even be fun. They are both experienced teachers over many years and committed to living mindfully in all that they do. They are both really excited to offer you this wonderful new course.


Tickets are from £30 to £160 (depending on income).
