Caroline Quinton Smith

Every human being has the capacity to be mindful. The Calm Quiet Space Mindfulness course I teach will help you develop skills to obtain emotional balance and well-being.

We will learn to settle the chattering mind and connect more with how we are feeling, rather than thinking, and bring about change from the inside.

Up until 1988, I worked as a nurse at Great Ormond Street Hospital. After then, I devoted my time to being a mum to my five children. During my years of nursing, I enjoyed making a difference to other people. I hope that during my parenting years, I have made a positive difference to my children.

Through my own Mindfulness practice, I decided to train as a mindfulness teacher in hopes of making a real difference to other people’s lives through my courses.

I completed my mindfulness teacher training in 2016 under the guidance of the Suryacitta Malcolm Smith at Mindfulness CIC. 

Suryacitta is the author of three books and has dedicated his life to the practices of Mindfulness and Compassion meditation since 1989. He is one of the most experienced teachers in the UK and leads events around the world. 

My training will always be ongoing and I regularly attend courses in Leicester.

The Calm Quiet Space Mindfulness Course

The Calm Quiet Space Mindfulness course is designed for those who wish to learn the practice of mindfulness. It is a natural and organic process and anyone with willingness and an open mind can learn. We will look at how to practice mindfulness at home and how to incorporate it into our daily lives.

Practising mindfulness can help reduce the pressures and stress of everyday life. The course will introduce you to the benefits of mindfulness to include physical and emotional well being, how to settle the chattering mind and how to enjoy life more fully by living in the present moment.

“We are not our thoughts and we are are not our emotions. Imagine a world where we witness thoughts without becoming them and experience feelings without being overwhelmed by them.”

Last year, at a relatively young age and out of the blue I had a stroke. My consultant strongly recommended a mindfulness course. I was not at all convinced it would be of any benefit, but being a good patient I signed up for the CQS Mindfulness course in October 2017. From the first session it has been beneficial for both my mind and body. It made me aware how much physical tension I was carrying around and has helped me to acknowledge and respond to stressful situations and emotions in a completely different manner. My long term insomnia has resolved. Caroline really does offer a 'calm, quiet space' which is so relaxing that I looked forward to the meeting every week. There is no pressure at all to do or say anything that you are not comfortable with. I wish I had been able to do this course years ago - it might have saved me from having a stroke.

I started Caroline’s 8 week mindfulness course as a novice mindfulness student but ended it as a complete convert! Caroline was a calm, engaging and knowledgeable teacher and together with her great mix of personal experience, explanations, mindfulness poetry and of course practical work - it opened my eyes to a new way of thinking and an understanding of how mindfulness can help me in my day to day life. I know there is much more practice ahead of me but I have started the beginning of my mindfulness journey! I would most certainly recommend Caroline’s course to any novice mindfulness students like myself or otherwise!

I recently completed a course with CQS and have discovered countless benefits in my life. Caroline’s gentle and thought provoking comments have helped me realise what I was missing. I am now able to bring mindfulness into my life and am able to meditate successfully. Her guidance and presence is informative and calming and make the whole process believable and achievable. There is no going back now! I know there is much more practice ahead of me but I have started the beginning of my mindfulness journey! I would most certainly recommend Caroline’s course to any novice mindfulness students like myself or otherwise!
