About the course
This 5-week course is for People of Colour who want to learn more about the key principles of Mindfulness and Meditation from a cultural perspective, and apply practical techniques to assist in day to day living. The course will assist with your experiences of racism and micro-aggression in the workplace or community and is a safe and supportive environment for people of colour to gain self-awareness, to heal from past and current forms of oppression and discrimination towards personal transformation.
Past participants came on the course for many reasons such as: To gain insight, to reduce tension, develop patience, to reduce anxiety, for healing and to renew their commitment towards self-development, to re-enforce a Mindfulness routine, to develop more spiritual awareness, to assist their team of counsellors and therapists, to feel more grounded, internally strong and motivated.
This introductory course assists participants to reduce levels of heightened anxiety and tension when dealing with personal challenges, external factors/events and throughout the lockdown. You will learn how to apply a range of life-enhancing techniques, gain insight and clarity, become more resilient, cope better and improve your well-being through self-awareness

"I am taking the Mindfulness course with Imani. I am loving the way she delivers this topic. She is passionate about offering the gift of mindfulness to her students. The course material is very helpful. Although I have been meditating for many years, Imani’s course has helped me take my meditation to a brand new level. I am already feeling more in the now and the breath work she is teaching me is very powerful. I’ve been using her method for a couple of weeks now and already feel the physical, mental and emotional benefits. Imani has such inner peace and is very grounded. It has been a delight being one of her students". Walkiria Bass - 2021
