We’re pleased that our newcomer online drop-in sessions on Wednesday mornings 10.30-11.15 are free during October and November with funding from Tesco.

Our popular Mindfulness Garden sessions will return after a break with continued funding from Bradford council for people over 50 living in Bradford (and their carers).

Those wanting to continue their mindfulness practice after a course can join us online on Saturday mornings for drop-in led meditation. 

Funding news

Over the last couple of months it has been deep source of hope to see and be part of a swelling of kindness and care in our communities across Leeds.  We are mindful that the impact of the social determinants of health will be brought even more into play by Covid -19 and we have been working hard to ensure we can broaden the reach of our work across our communities in Leeds.

We are now able to expand the work we are doing in Leeds with people living with sensory impairment thanks to funding from the Coronavirus Community Support Fund, distributed by The National Lottery Community Fund, which will mean we can produce interpreted resources, easy read guides and run an 8-week Mindfulness course for people in the Deaf community. 

This funding also allows us to produce resources to support our successful Visually Impaired mindfulness group. All of these courses will be run with Feel Good Factor. Thanks to the Government for making this possible.

We have overcome the barriers of technology to deliver an online course for Visually Impaired people in Leeds. Building connection and embodying mindfulness on zoom is an additional challenge we are all facing. Its been fantastic to see the group embrace technology and build a space where sharing and enquiry is possible. Each week we are able to experience deep communication and further develop our mindfulness practice. Thanks to Harnessing the Power of Communities for funding and to Tracey Nicholls, sensory impairment worker at Feel Good Factor for her incredible support.
