Welcome to Mindfullives Meditation & Mindfulness Group. We meet at Gainsborough's House, Gainsborough Street, Sudbury, Suffolk, CO10 2EU (entrance on Weavers Lane) every two weeks on Sunday from 10.30am – 12.15pm.

My name is Glenn Pennington and I have had a personal and professional commitment to meditation and mindfulness for more than 15 years. I facilitate the sessions and like to think that everyone who attends will find the meetings useful for their own personal requirements. Although serious about what we do, you will find the sessions relaxed, friendly and welcoming, as we want you enjoy your experience whatever your reason for joining with us.

The aim of the group is to introduce people to the benefits of meditation and mindfulness for health and wellbeing.

The instruction is informed by traditional meditative teachings and current psychological understanding, whereby participants are invited to ‘try into’ rather than ‘buy into’ what is offered in the sessions.

The sessions are arranged and planned to cover specific aspects of meditation and mindfulness and include how they can be specifically helpful for addressing particular psychological issues/problems as in the examples listed below. 

Alternatively You may just want to learn to meditate for its own sake and that is absolutely fine, you can do that.

1.  Difficulty concentrating.
