Mindful Stream

Hello and welcome to my website.........

My name is Carole Lacy and I teach the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) programme. New courses for 2020 are booking now in Stourbridge, West Midlands and Wolverley in Worcestershire. 

This course follows the clinically proven and extensively researched curriculum developed by Professor Jon Kabat-Zinn in the late 70's.

So what might it do for you?

Worldwide research has shown that following the gold standard MBSR programme can help us handle stress more effectively, reduce anxiety, help with management of physical conditions such as chronic pain, high blood pressure and skin conditions, increase our resistance to infections and help us build resilience to face life's challenges.

But you don't need to be suffering in this way to benefit from the course. Many of us have a sense that 'things could be better'; our relationships, work/life balance, wellbeing and general contentment with life; and in this, Mindfulness training can be life changing.

Following the course helps us to wake up to life, moment by moment, and become the best that we can be.

Jon Kabat-Zinn famously said, 'If you're breathing there's more right with you than wrong with you'. 

However, we sometimes need a bit of help to start to notice the 'right' bits.

Courses are now booking for 2020 in Stourbridge and Bodenham Arboretum. More Taster Sessions are in the planning so watch this space.

Please explore this website, then if you'd like to book your place on a course or taster session, call me on 0793 962 3566 or email [email protected]

I look forward to meeting you.

With warm wishes,
