Mindfulness Meditation Class

Jo also offers a monthly Mindfulness Meditation Class on the first Friday and third Friday of every month, between 7.30 and 9.00 p.m.

Silent Retreat Days

Mindfulness teacher Jo Christa Taylor also offers four days of Silent Mindfulness Meditation practice each year at the Bridge Centre. These take place on Sundays 10.00 a.m – 3.30 p.m.

These days fully guided and can be enjoyed as stand alone events or to support your existing Mindfulness Meditation practices. No experience required although they are a perfect opportunity for people who have completed an 8-week Mindfulness Course to reconnect with Mindfulness.

"Just wanted to say a big thank you for last Sunday. I got so much benefit from it - a total mind de clutter. As I said, I could barely string a sentence together by the end of the day!! in the best possible way. I slept so deeply for the next few days. I didn't fully realise how much I'd benefited till the next day, when I had the brain power to process. I pretty regularly do 40-minutes mindfulness but it doesn't compare to a whole day of being freed of the need to talk yet being in comfortable companionship, to be mindful for a whole day.”
