Calm Quiet Space Mindfulness
Every human being has the capacity to be mindful. The Calm Quiet Space Mindfulness course will teach you the 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.
Course Dates: 4th October – 29th November (8 x Thursdays 9:30 – 11:30am)
with Caroline Quinton Smith
What is Mindfulness? And what’s it all about?
Have you ever driven your car somewhere and arrived at your destination only to realise you remember nothing about your journey? Or started eating a packet of crisps, then suddenly noticed all you had left in your hands was an empty packet? Most of us have! These are common examples of ‘mindlessness’ or a state that can be referred to as on ‘autopilot’.
Living this way – in mindlessness – we often fail to notice the joy of life, fail to enjoy what is going on around us, what our bodies are telling us, or often get stuck in mechanical conditioned ways of thinking.
It has been said that mindfulness is the opposite of mindlessness. It means waking up out of autopilot and ‘taking the steering wheel’ of our attention again. To be mindful is to live in the present moment and practicing meditation can help us to achieve this goal.
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.
Practicing 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.”

About Caroline Quinton Smith
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.
