Dr Elizabeth English began meditating as a student in 1983. Three decades later, she was appointed as Cambridge University’s first ever Mindfulness Practitioner. Her courses are the subject of research published in The Lancet showing significant benefit to students, and are now also offered more widely online (www.elizabethenglish.life). Elizabeth draws on four decades of personal meditation practice and her ordination within a Western Buddhist tradition, as well as her doctoral research at Oxford, where she studied Buddhist meditation texts. She is also a certified teacher of Focusing, Somatic Experiencing and Nonviolent Communication. She spends much of her time singing and writing, both poetry and prose. Her first ‘gentle guide’ to meditation was published this year: Journeys to the Deep: A Gentle Guide to Mindfulness Meditation. 

Mindfulness for Better Sleep

Mindfulness has much to offer those who wish for more rest, and a better quality of sleep. We are delighted to share a four-week course which will cover the essentials of sleep hygiene, introducing mindful practices that can help you towards healthy and refreshing sleep at night and more energy during the day. Following the course and its practices, we hope you can make significant progress in tackling problems such as: 

  • feeling ‘tired but wired’ at night 
  • struggling to get to sleep, or stay asleep 
  • waking up feeling tired and drained 
  • not waking up or getting up when you wish 
  • feeling tired during the day

Four-week course

This four-week course will run on one of the following blocks:

September:  on Sunday or Wednesday evenings (7:00-8:30pm)
