About us: Who are we?

Tracy Connor

I undertook my training with the Mindfulness Association (MA) to teach the Mindfulness Based Living Course (MBLC) and the Compassion Based Living Course (CBLC) and I also have a post graduate diploma from the University of Aberdeen in Studies in Mindfulness. You will find my name on the UK list of accredited Mindfulness teachers (BAMBA). I teach mindfulness both in my NHS role as a Macmillan Nurse to people living with and beyond cancer as well as to people living close to my Lincolnshire home. In 2019 I completed a two-year internship with the Mindfulness Association. The Macmillan charity commissioned me to teach mindfulness in venues across the whole of the Midlands as part of their teaching and education program available to patients and their non-clinical employees during 2017 to 2019.


My teaching comes from a deeply imbedded personal practice of mindfulness and compassion. My practice has brought transformation to both my personal and professional life which is why I have such confidence in sharing it with people. 

Mike Fitzgerald

I am an accredited mindfulness and compassion teacher. As part of my training I have trained with organisations such as Breathworks, The Mindfulness Association (MA), Oxford University Mindfulness centre, Mindfulness in Schools Project, and the Santa Barbra Institute for Consciousness Studies. I have also completed an MSc in Studies in Mindfulness from The University of Aberdeen, where I focused on the importance of self-compassion for personal wellbeing, especially for teenagers.


My teaching draws on my own struggles with a set of rare, debilitating, and poorly understood health conditions, including the physical, emotional, and mental difficulties this has manifested. My personal practice draws on many mindfulness and compassion traditions, and has helped me to better understand both my body and mind, as I have learned how to accept, and compassionately respond to, the difficulties my health presents, and to fully embrace the joy often overlooked in life, part of which is sharing the benefits of these transformational practices.

Some of what we have to offer

Free Weekly Sessions

Come and join us on Tuesday evenings between 8 - 8.45pm where we provide a friendly, relaxed place to join with others in learning how to apply mindfulness & compassion to our lives

8 Week Mindfulness Based Living Course (MBLC)

The MBLC is based on the Mindfulness Association's (MA) one year training. It provides a gently unfolding introduction to mindfulness and is for those with no experience as well as people wishing to deepen their practice


The MBLC is run over eight two hourly evening sessions, or four half day weekend sessions. There is also a whole day session on the Saturday between weeks six and seven, and a follow-up session one month after the eighth session.


Each of the sessions is composed of: 

  • Short relevant talks about all aspects of mindfulness
  • Guided meditations including the body scan, sitting meditation, mindful movement and walking, and mindfulness in everyday life
  • Sharing our experience of the meditation practices

To support your learning a handbook and guided audio meditations are provided. Meditations are provided either via CD, MP3, or an app.

8 Week Compassion Based Living Course (CBLC)

The CBLC builds on the MBLC and is based on the Mindfulness Association's (MA) one year compassion training. It incorporates psychological and contemplative perspectives to help build inner resilience and self-compassion. 


The CBLC uses a variety of Mindfulness and Compassion exercises to help acknowledge and encourage our innate qualities of kindness, empathy, acceptance, strength, courage, equanimity and joy; these have all been proven to have a profound effect on our mind and our wellbeing.


People need to have an established mindfulness practice to undertake this course.

What our course participants are saying

Tracy and Mike I Cannot Thank you both enough for bringing together such a wonderful like minded group of individual people with connecting souls. I feel very honoured to have been on your course and have learned so much about myself which has helped not only myself but filtered through to my family and friends.


Looking forward to the next course. Love to all on the course hope to see you all again very soon. I can highly recommend this course.

Sarah Paley

A lovely group to have been with over these last weeks, led and supported by the two most wonderful teachers Tracy and Mike. Thank you both for everything. You have been an inspiration to us all.

Richard Leven​

How lovely to see so many happy faces who are enjoying a day of silent mindfulness. I am looking forward to being at the next one on 5th August. A day like this gives us a chance to re-centre ourselves, to re-inhabit, to regain contact with ourselves. I'm afraid to say that sometimes when I am rushing about, my many actions and environments cut me off from myself (or at least can weigh me down and lead my mind away from the moments when I feel I exist). A silent retreat day helps expose us to an environment where we can feel quiet, slowness and continuity...all "foods" for our mind that facilitate mindfulness. Many thanks to Tracy and Mike for organising these days.

David Scoffield

I have just completed a mindfulness based living course with Tracy and Mike, two incredible people and professional teachers. If you want to transform your life and introduce a more grounded way of being into your day to day living do one of their courses. You will be be welcomed and meet lovely like minded people to share your journey with. An amazing experience. Thank you both.
