"It was a powerful experience – transformative, even – doing Hugh Poulton's six-hour mindfulness workshop. Perceptive and good-humoured, Hugh speaks in a clear, even-handed way, using real-life examples to illuminate his ideas and effectively explaining thought processes and emotional patterns that made me see them in a new light. It felt revolutionary to slow down and take five minutes to savour a biscuit; to move around, all seven of us in the group, in companionable silence while making and then eating lunch; and later to take a break from our short meditations and intensive discussions and walk, on our own, for 20 minutes through the neighbourhood with “soft vision” and heightened senses. I took home with me some invaluable tools for coping with stress and negative thought patterns, such as how to tackle challenging tasks in a new way, how to use a gentle smile to relieve tension, and how to non-judgmentally acknowledge my relationship to my feelings — these calming tactics have lasted long beyond that enlightening, enjoyable day. To Hugh I am indebted for showing me the way towards a more balanced perspective and an awakened peace of mind. " Leah Jewett Spring 2014
