I teach MBCT/MBSR to the public and in a range of workplaces. I was co-chair of the Workplace strand of the Mindful Nation UK inquiry. My books include Mindfulness (Icon) and Mindful London (Virgin). I have a PhD in History from Cambridge University and have practiced mindfulness for 25 years.
I teach regular mindfulness courses in the Houses of Parliament on behalf of the OMC. I’m part of a small group advising the OMC on issues relating to mindfulness in the workplace, such as developing a series of masterclasses in workplace mindfulness. Having taught MBCT/MBSR to the general public since 2009, I’m especially interested in how mindfulness can realise its full potential beyond beginner courses as a transformative path over the course of a lifetime.
As public interest grows, mindfulness teaching is expanding and innovating at an extraordinary rate. The OMC is a focal point in this developing field: it responds quickly to new demands, while maintaining high standards of research and teaching. I’m delighted to teach on behalf of the OMC, and to be part of a community supporting human flourishing in every sphere.
