for pain, stress and illness
Breathworks Mindfulness skills help you manage pain, illness and fatigue using:
breath-based meditation and body awareness,
a gentle movement program and pacing,
and meditation practices using self-compassion and empathy to others.
Both Breathworks courses are offered in Beachport: Mindfulness for Health and Mindfulness for Stress. These are 8 week, non-residential courses, where participants meet each week for group teaching, mindfulness training and guided meditations. All courses are facilitated by Dr Chris Waite and Linda Carter-Shepherd.
This course is suitable for anyone living with pain, illness or stress that is impacting on their health. Courses are limited to a maximum of 12 participants.
Participants are encouraged to complete guided meditations twice daily at home and exercises designed to bring mindfulness into their daily lives.

When invited to a meditation course I was free of pain from any major effects, so thought it was not for me. Involved in lots of things like meetings, volunteering and exercises, there never seemed to be enough energy… well that all changed with meditation.
It has given me energy, a way of life so new - as well as being kinder to myself, a great awareness of my breath and body, as well as outside suroundings. The CD’s are a great help and guide. I cannot imagine my life without meditation. Thank you.

“Mindfulness has given me a quality of life that I have not had for many years. Life is good again”
Chris, Millicent (June 2014)
The Breathworks course continues to make a huge impact on my life, both at home & at school. Being involved in this course has been so much more beneficial than all the counsellors & other people that I have been sent to work with! I have had to deal with a huge range of various issues & Dr Chris Waite needs to be congratulated for the care, enthusiasm & knowledge that he brings to this course. I feel extremely privileged to have taken part in it & I genuinely hope this comes across as a glowing statement as that is my full intention!"
