Welcome to the 8 Week Mindfulness Meditation Course
Mindfulness is a beautiful practice that allows us to live our lives being conscious of the present moment.
Most of our worries belong either to the past or the future. Compulsively worrying, planning and trying to fix a problem or make up for a dissatisfaction is how most of experience the majority of our waking moments. Sometimes we are so caught up with the stories and thoughts in our mind that our everyday activities start to appear meaningless. We do most things on auto pilot and miss the joy that is available to us moment to moment.
This 8 week mindfulness course is intended to bring that joy back- by realigning to our present, to our life and living with more wisdom and consciousness.

Read what participants from previous workshops have to say about their experience:
It was a great learning experience and a sort of turning point in my life where I gained insight into a lot of aspect about myself.Mindfulness helped me see the path in my life.All of us must experience this for once in life. Sadia is an amazing facilitator and i thank her from the bottom of my heart for leading me through this 8 weeks of mindful joy.
These 8 weeks have been life altering . Something within has shifted. My knowledge of my self and the world around has expanded. I am more calm and centered and this course has been much more than I expected it to be. Thank you Sadia and team,you really have impacted my life deeply.
The experience has been inspiring. I have been skeptical of meditation and spirituality all my life. But mindfulness is something beyond that. It is simultaneously wonderful yet ordinarily reachable. It makes you love yourself.
As a resistant person who tried this class with an open mind,this has been a shifting my approach and perception. This is all thanks to Sadia and her practical and compassionate approach to everyone. I am leaving with abundant knowledge and I ant to learn more. This class changed my life. You have to experience it to understand it.
In the world of thinkers, this is a workshop that beautifully integrated the science and the actual practice of mindfulness. It has taught me to feel “okay” rather than just thinking it.
‘Slow is fast’ made complete experiential sense in these 8 weeks, despite knowing it as information since long .”Just being ” got even deeper along with compassion for self and others. A different sense of energy and felt empowerment. Shall miss the group energy.
The overall experience of this 8 week mindfulness has helped me grow and connect well with myself.I think having it for 8 weeks helps you to go deep in mindfulness and overall awareness is far more stronger. I am happy and working more on insight.
The course has helped me deepen my understanding and practice of mindfulness, which has helped me to “be” more and also be calm.
Calming, peaceful, meaningful. Awareness has increased tremendously. Learnt techniques to manage, handle my emotions and feelings. I no longer find it difficult when emotions come up. I now know how to handle them. There is no fear when they and if they surface. Learnt to be compassionate and accepting of myself and the space I am in. It has been a wonderful experience. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Truly, a life altering workshop. Thank you.
Deeper understanding of self, without getting attached made me understand myself better. Staying with emotions and feelings that I was avoiding or trying to run away from made me come to a state of equilibrium.’The state of being ‘. I cannot fully explain the shift and changes in words, the experiences felt is very different. It is eye opening. It is like seeing myself as one by own sight and not by someone else’s eyes. I feel deeply filled with gratitude to be able to attend this course. Thank you to everyone who helped and could plan the course. Deep gratitude. 🙂
