Secular forms of Buddhism have become increasingly popular in the West. Mindfulness practices are now utilised in schools, organisations and in psychotherapy. Mindfulness is, however, not just a treatment technique but forms part of a rich philosophy for making sense of our own existence.

It will include gentle movement, Vipassana practice and some Korean Zen techniques
