Christian Mindfulness Workshops
Anne has run ‘Introduction to Christian Mindfulness’ workshops and Christian Mindfulness practice sessions in several churches.
Mindfulness is widely used in the secular world, because it has been shown to have profound benefits for health and wellbeing. In a Christian context, it can be a spiritual practice, in keeping with centuries of Christian contemplative tradition – a way of being more present to the presence of God.
As well as helping you to be more alive to the present moment, mindfulness develops a different relationship to thoughts and emotions, allowing you to be more detached and in control of them. St. Paul encourages us to ‘take every thought captive‘ 2 Corinthians 10:5 and this is exactly what mindfulness enables us to do.

Next speaking date:
Inspirational Breakfast show with Esther Higham
Premier Christian Radio
Monday 4th March 2024
Anne will be talking to Esther about why so many of us struggle with insomnia, navigating the endless amounts of sleep products/cures recommended to us, how we can find true rest in the age of blue light and distractions, and what young people can teach us about going to bed early
Please contact Anne with any enquiries.
Here’s what participants have said about the sessions
‘I really enjoy Anne’s mindfulness sessions. She creates a calm and meditative atmosphere and I am learning to concentrate and remain in the moment. Her voice is soothing and yet gently probing; helping us to block out extraneous thoughts. I always emerge with my back straighter to find a world that I seem to see afresh.’
‘Since starting to practise mindfulness and coming to the group, I have found I am able to stop, look and listen to life around me. It steadies my thoughts and improves my ability to make decisions. In the group, it is good to sit quietly with others who are doing the same exercise. The discipline of being led in contemplation is so much easier that when practising alone. It has certainly led me into a steadier and more “right thinking” attitude to life.’
