Set in an acre of garden, the Centre is an idyllic space that facilitates mindfulness and contemplative living. Run by Carole Doherty, the philosophy here is one of respecting the synergy between humans and our environment, allowing for the unfolding of where we are right now in our lives. The garden is central to this philosophy and is tended to in a sympathetic way. Here, following the principles of acceptance and non-judgement, we do not 'wage war' with what is unwanted either in the garden or in ourselves. Instead, we extend the approach of mindfulness-based compassion to all.
