"Mindfulness has had a profound effect on me ... possibly more than anything else in my life to date."

Mindfulness Meditation Courses, Retreats & Teacher Training

Our mindfulness courses are CPD accredited by the Standards office

​Here at the Midlands centre for mindfulness and compassion CIC, we offer a variety of mindfulness and compassion courses based on the secular approach pioneered by Jon Kabat Zinn and Suryacitta's own experience of nearly 30 years of practice.

Research shows the benefits of regular Mindfulness Meditation includes:

  • Emotional and psychological well-being
  • Reduction of anxiety
  • Better able to manage difficult situations
  • Lowering blood pressure
  • Better health and vitality​
  • Quality of life

And many more!


Suryacitta Malcolm Smith talks about mindfulness and the two daggers in Sydney, Australia, 2015


We run mindfulness meditation courses, and meditation retreats for:-

  • The general public
  • Business
  • Charities
  • Universities
  • Healthcare and NHS

Often people who have completed our eight week course decide they would like to teach mindfulness within their profession. Therefore we run  teacher training for those interested in pursuing this path.


We are on the Be Mindful list of mindfulness course providers for the UK and are a Community Interest Company. This means we’re not out to make profit for ourselves, we look to give something back to the community and to help improve people’s lives. Thus, we reinvest in mindfulness based initiatives and projects that will further benefit the community.


Although we are based in Leicestershire and Coventry University, our mindfulness and compassion meditation courses are mobile, thus our stress management events are run in London, Birmingham and the UK.


Our aim:

We use our mindfulness meditation to:

  • reduce stress, pain and illness; increasing emotional and psychological well-being
  • train teachers to pass on their knowledge and help others
  • help every individual person in a way that is best suited to them

Suryacitta and Dr Liz Sparkes like to share their knowledge, if you are interested in inviting them to your organisation or learning more about mindfulness please contact us today!


As a CIC we don't turn anybody away for financial reasons. So please get in touch as we are always ready to help.
