Mindfulness Taster course
This short course aims to introduce you to mindfulness, and includes a few short practices that you can start using right away.
You can open each section, and work through at your own pace, and read, listen to, or download materials whenever you choose.
This was prepared by Simon Michaels of Mindful Work, for Action for Children.

What to do next
If you’re new to mindfulness or you just dip in and out of apps and articles, I strongly recommend that you take an 8 week course. The daily practice over two months can be transformative. Make sure the teacher has long meditation experience.
If you’ve done an 8 week course, the challenge is to keep it going. Find ways to integrate the practices into everyday activities. Try to make even a 5 minute practice time every morning and set a simple intention, such as ‘I will be kind in all my interactions today’.
I offer 8 week online courses with remote coaching if needed, with a focus on bringing mindfulness into the workplace.
