What people are saying

  • "This course has helped me on many levels and there were many AHA-moments for me. I felt a closer connection to myself, my emotions, and my body. Yet, being able to be the observer of all the thoughts and emotions, without losing myself in them. And not to mention, practicing the powerful tool of self-compassion."

  • "I really enjoyed the way the course was led with embodied mindfulness, compassion and kindness. This was truly important for my learning. Also, I really liked the mix of scientific evidence with the slightly more spiritual tone (such as the poems) of the course material."

  • “Having had some experience with mindfulness before, I wanted to deepen my knowledge. This course showed me new practices and techniques, and after trial and error, I found the ones that best suit me, which I’m incorporating in my day to day. Thank you for these lifelong tools. Can’t recommend it enough!”

Your Teachers

Learn from Mindfulness Teachers trained by leading institutions

Emma Diddi

I’m a mindfulness and meditation teacher, trained with the University of Oxford’s mindfulness research centre in Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy. I also teach yoga. Until 2019 I was working as an e-Commerce Director, and then decided to turn my interest in human flourishing and wellbeing into a full time mission. Prior to that, working in a high-pressure environment had led me to meditation in 2014, and I’ve since had a daily practice that has supported my physical and mental wellbeing in infinite ways. My personal journey and exploration of human potential have brought me to many different disciplines that influence my teaching; yoga, Somatic Experiencing, dance & free movement, cognitive behavioural therapy, breathwork, Dharma teaching, and mindfulness.


  • What is Mindfulness?

    Mindfulness is a natural human capacity to pay attention to the present moment without judgment. This ‘attentional training’ combined with the cultivation of specific attitudes has the power to shift many aspects of your reality. In this course, it is taught based on a psychological science model of the mind alongside cognitive exercises.

  • What is the course format?

    This course is held online and rooted in group-based learning with 8 sessions and 1 day of practice/retreat day (optional). You will be 5-8 participants per course.

  • Is this course suitable for everyone?

    The course is suitable for beginners or anyone who would like to refresh and deepen their mindfulness practice. If you have suffered from any psychological illness or bereavement in the last 6 months or currently taking medication please get in touch beforehand so we can discuss together if the course is suitable for you at this time.

  • Do I need to attend all 8 Sessions and the 'Day of Practice'?

    If you miss a session that's OK, but try to commit to attending all 8 sessions as each session builds on what has been introduced before.

    The ‘day of practice’ (held after session 6) is not part of the course learning and therefore optional, but it's a great way to deepen your understanding.

  • Will there be additional course work to do at home?

    Each session is followed by suggestions for personal practice of up to 45 minutes. This includes both recommended guided practices, and also ways to cultivate new habits of mindfulness in everyday life.

  • What are the course dates?

    26/10, 2/11, 9/11, 16/11, 23/11, 30/11, 7/12, 14/12 and retreat day 4/12 (4-5 hours)
