6 week course

Mindful Relationships

A 6-week course

We spend much of our lives in relation to others: family, friends, an intimate partner, co-workers. While our relationships with others can be a source of great joy, they can also be the cause of anxiety and conflict. Wouldn’t it be useful to understand more about how we “do” relationships?

Mindfulness is often taught with a focus on the thoughts, feelings and sensations that we have while sitting in silence on our chairs or cushions, on our own. It can, over time, lead to greater self-acceptance and peace with the world. And it can also be a powerful tool for investigating how we respond to others.

In this course, we will use mindfulness practices to gain a greater understanding of ourselves in relationships. With more understanding can come less stress, more self-compassion and a greater ability to self-regulate.


This course will be facilitated by Craig Delphine. Craig holds a Masters degree in Gestalt Therapy and has been a meditator for many years. He is a certified trainer in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and has received training in Mindful Self-compassion.

  • There is no requirement for participants to have previous experience of mindfulness or meditation.

  • Home practice will be highly desirable for the duration of the course.

  • Places are limited to a maximum of 12 participants.
