Dr. Gareth Burr (Bsc;PhD/DPhil)
Gareth offers Mindfulness Tuition; one-day retreats,
w/e retreats & the annual silent-led retreat. Gareth's
courses, classes and sessions are highly recommended for
all stages - both beginners and advanced.

Gareth is with The Independent Mindfulness Teachers Guild (IMTG):
an East-anglian group of Mindfulness Teachers, now scheduling
weekend 'Mindfulness in Nature' silent-led retreats
for 2021 and 2022 - please email for more info.

Gareth trained in the Mindfulness teacher training
program with the Centre for Mindfulness Research & Practice
(CMRP) at Bangor University, completing to level TTL3
(Teacher Training Level 3). He teaches the 8-week
Mindfulness course in Cambridge, and first engaged with the
formal mindfulness training in 1997 during doctoral studies at
the University of Oxford. He is currently running an active
farm and outdoor woodland retreat centre in South Cambs &
follows the UK good practice guidelines for Mindfulness
Teachers. Gareth welcomes all opportunities to engage on
the subject - including the nature of the paradox that may
arise on the path of 'trying' too hard to achieve it..

Nondual Mindfulness

During a practice session we sit still and become
interested in noticing the qualities of our wakefulness
resting in the nature of being and knowing and paying close
attention to all the qualities and types of sensations
in direct experience including feelings and thoughts.

This practice involves noticing our natural cycles of
both willingness and unwillingness (to practice) and
paying attention to our moods (and modes) of being and
noticing the qualities of different kinds of sensations
and feelings and thoughts. This kind of listening and
watching and learning involves inquiry into the nature
of experience itself.

During mindfulness practice we notice our forgetting
and our remembering and the practice is gradually and
increasingly enhanced as we develop, by including an encompassing into the practice what is unfolding in
and around us and we also learn to include the various
ways that we relate to 'what is happening' within and
around. And with practice and patience we gain insight
into ourselves and discover natural capacities and
capabilities for resting in (and as) ever-present awareness

The mindfulness approach here involves pursuing our interest and
curiosity (and courage!) to explore an attitude that opens access
to deep insight into the nature of experience:
including all the levels and layers of our
common human inter-existence. We notice and attend
to what we don't normally pay attention to -or notice- during the
busy-ness ('business') of our day-to-day
lives: ever watchful for the familiar forms
of thought and feelings that arise

if you are looking for a quiet place in Cambridge to engage
in some nondual mindfulness practice, this could be the place for you

And what we come to notice in the important space
of our practice will become invaluable: transforming
and enriching life in relation to self, others and
the world that we all share. With commitment to
practice comes the wonders of exploration, adventure
and discovery.

Mindfulness involves training the mind to notice
the qualities of direct and immediate experience:
recognising important aspects of human nature,
with emphasis on knowing how we are -and what we are-
(rather than 'who' we think we are): with entangled
attachments and habitual tendencies seen in new light.

The mindfulness course includes meditation practices
and mind-body exercises with plenty of opportunities
in the class to discuss and reflect upon the nature
of experience. An important element of this course
is home practice. This can be quite a big challenge,
as participants are asked to practice at home as part
of a daily routine, and, like learning any new skill:
practice is the key.

There will be options of retreat days to stabilise and
develop our daily meditation practices, with day retreats
and meet-ups, seminars, and w/e silent-led retreats as
well as the annual silent led retreat

Mindfulness is now the subject of many scientific studies.
Due to its track record it is widely used in the NHS as
an effective treatment for stress, anxiety and depression.
The mindfulness training has been shown to improve the
functional connectivity of the brain, improving attentional
focus and enhancing sensory awareness. There is
substantial evidence to show how the brain's connectivity
networks associated with attention and sensory processing
show training-related changes after mindfulness training.

Other wellbeing outdoor activities organised in
association with the wider community, include:
walking in the woods; working on the farm;
Autumn apple-picking days; wild food foraging
and raw food nutrition; fungi foraging; green
woodworking; willow weaving; coppicing and
charcoal making, and, ..the art of simply
just being: where the qualities of mindfulness
can be more fully integrated: investing in
our human 'being' - alongside our human 'doing'

-daily blog offer
the mindfulness sessions remind us of the work of
ever learning and ever refining the subtle arts of
knowing awareness in a small welcoming group of people:
exploring a way of being and a way of knowing;
allowing life in us to open in new and surprising ways..
listening with others -and listening to others, and
listening and leaning-in -to any joy, or conflict and
reconnecting again with what it is to be -and unbe, in
all our human, and more-than-human ways and modes..

The journey home is experiential
-coming home to yourself and connecting with
a widening field of awareness with others,
with attention to what is current, that is to say
-life as it is unfolding with space and spaciousness;
exploring approaches and ways and means of dropping
attention back into Awareness: of widening & focusing,
This is an enriching experience.

By the end of the course you will be
equipped to use these skills in life
- whenever you need them: alone and
in exchange with others.
