These secular sessions are led by John Danvers, the Buddhist Chaplain. They are offered as part of the Staff Life programme and no experience is necessary.

Quiet mindful awareness can be enormously helpful in dealing with stress, exhaustion and overwork, and in restoring energy levels and improving wellbeing. These sessions have been established to provide staff and PGR students with a time and place for quiet attention. Guidance is available for anyone who has not previously practised mindful meditation.

Please email Staff Life at if you would like to be added to the emailing list for the group.

For more detail please see the Mindful Meditation page on the Staff Life website.
