Both of them have collectively over 30 years of meditation experience in various branches of Buddhism. Before moving to London, Karuna had spent 15 years in monasteries in Thailand and Sri Lanka. Mindfulness is a simple, drug-free and self-empowering way for you to improve your health, resolve relationship conflicts and enable yourself to discard limiting beliefs that are holding you back. Mindfulness has been shown to reduce anxiety levels by 58% and stress by 40% (Krusche et al, 2013, Oxford University). The course is developed from the Four Foundations of Mindfulness, inspired by the works of Dr Jon Kabat-Zinn of University of Massachusetts Medical School with MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction) and Dr Mark Williams of Oxford University with MBCT (Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy). It combines secular and traditional mindfulness practices. It is perfect for anyone wanting to learn mindfulness techniques from a practical point of view and set up a daily regular meditation.  Video testimonials (YOUTUBE) TESTIMONIALS FROM THOSE ATTENDED  Suzy, Editor of Psychologies Magazine.  “I have been meditating every day since we met Karuna!” Laura Simpson, University College London.  “I would recommend doing a mindfulness course with Nitima and Karuna in a heartbeat. From the very first moment they inspire calm and well-being and create an atmosphere in which meditation and mindfulness seem to come naturally. I started the 6 week course with insomnia and difficulties in dealing with the stresses of undertaking a challenging masters programme. By only the third week I was sleeping much better and was more relaxed and focused. Thank you Akanista!” Michael, Footballer, England, Arsenal & Liverpool FC. “I would encourage anybody who is going through stuff in their lives to come to this course to find peace of mind and connect with their being and bloom like a flower.” Nicola, CEO Maia Luxury.  “I felt fantastic. So much more grounded and this was a massive lesson in dealing with stressful situations. They have something really special about them.” Nikki Chivers, Choices 4 All.  “You provided me with an amazing experience of well-being. The provision of tools enable me to develop a coping strategy. This has been so empowering.” Natalie Nolte, Sothebys.  “Karuna’s teachings were profound and his meditation training was a life changer for me.” Bhargav Dave, MEC Global.  “Akanista mindfulness classes have shown me a simple yet highly effective way of becoming calmer and focused in my day to day life. The recordings that are provided at the end of each class are helping me practise the techniqu es on a daily basis. All in all, very useful class and I strongly recommend it to anyone who wishes to bring more calmness in their lives”
