Enquire about Mindfulness Coaching
Our mindfulness coaching program is based on MBSR; the gold standard of mindfulness training globally and the main program the international body of research is based on. We also combine coaching and positive psychology approaches to our mindfulness program and all our coaches are trained MBSR teachers. The program helps you map and navigate your practice and life through the four foundations of mindfulness; the body, emotions, mind states and greater environment.
Our Mindfulness Coaching program is for professionals, teachers, coaches/trainers, students and healthcare workers. Our programs can accrue Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points please see your professional organisations guidelines for their specific requirements. You must be over the age of 16 to attend. (See Youth Coaching program for teens.)
You’ll be required to do readings, practises and activities every week. A genuine commitment to daily mindfulness meditation home practise is encouraged for the duration of the 8 weeks and hopefully beyond.
According to neuroscientist Richard Davidson and Daniel Goldman a researcher of emotional intelligence, after a rigorous analysis of all the current gold standard medical research the benefits of mindfulness include stronger focus, staying calmer under stress, better memory, and good corporate citizenship.
Mindfulness meditation practise can lead to significant changes in the brain aka brain plasticity. Improving connectivity to the self regulating region and decreasing the size of the reactive region of the brain.
Our evidence based program is offered in a secular framework but we acknowledge the teachings draw from the ancient, Eastern wisdom of Buddhism in the Zen and Insight traditions.
Our mindfulness teachers embody their own practice and attend silent retreats annually to deepen their mindfulness practice; the research has shown this is an essential ingredient in being an effective mindfulness teacher.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the teachings of Mindfulness. Marion is just beautiful and compassionate and made me feel completely comfortable to be open and share my experiences.Meanie Ryan
One thing I can see happening is change, and that’s because I’m taking accountability. I’m loving this. It’s fun, it’s challenging, it’s meaningful. Really glad I started this process. Looking forward to a really positive week.Sam Arlington
The 6 week mindfulness course informed me of the importance of meditation for mental health. I found my skills set was improved and it improved my self-awareness and the development of greater calmness.Aiden Jones
I have tried meditation in the past- many years ago. I remembering finding it difficult then, to silence my mind and focus “on the candle”. When I discovered Marion’s website I knew this was going to be a different approach to traditional meditation and that the scientific approach appealed to me.
I consider myself somewhat spiritual but I am still governed by my analytical side” the need to understand the process and the outcome- ultimately my need to control my environment”
From my 6 weeks with the class- I pushed aside the need to control and the frustration to perfect the process..and allowed myself to settle into the moment, no judgement, no criticism and no assessment” these are the key pillars to being present.
Once I adopted the process of Mindfulness, I become more aware of myself and the triggers to stress, empowering me at work and with managing situations- ultimately gaining more control”
I am committed to incorporating mindfulness into my routine and strongly recommend Marion’s 6 week session to all those that lead corporate and busy lifestyles.Georgia Falke
