Introduction to Meditation & Mindfulness- £175

4-week meditation and mindfulness immersion course which will enable you to understand the principles of meditation


Haelan Therapy are delighted to present a brand new, four-week unique course which we are adding to our selection of meditation and mindfulness offerings.

What makes it unique? This new course takes you on a personal development journey with meditation and mindfulness. We start with a three-hour in-person workshop at the beginning of week 1 to learn the fundamentals and meet your fellow students. We then work together in an online community for the next month, with a weekly meditation and mindfulness programme, regular briefings and live sessions with your teacher, not to mention comprehensive ongoing support throughout the programme from your fellow students and your teacher. It is a full immersion into meditation and mindfulness, giving you everything you need to explore embody these skills into your life.

Launching in July 2018, the course enables each participant to understand the principles of meditation, learn various breathing techniques and practice a variety of meditation, mindfulness and relaxation techniques.

Graduates will have the option to deepen their practice and extend their learning with Haelan Therapy through other learning options, after the course is completed.

The course structure

Week 1:    In-person three-hour deep-dive session (at our treatment rooms)

Week 2 – 4:    Online weekly and daily practice, available in your own time and at your convenience

Week 4:    In-person three-hour deep-practice, discussion and Q&A session (at our treatment rooms)

Each week, students will learn a variety of new skills and techniques, as well as have the opportunity to ask questions and contribute within the online learning group. After the first deep-dive session, you will practice at home in your own time, with the full support of your teacher and fellow students in our online environment.

About your teacher – Philip Jon Storey


Hi, I’m Philip and I teach meditation at Haelan Therapy. I came to meditation through my own journey with life’s stresses and strains. Working in the city as a director of a large technology company, I was seeking to find the answer to “what does freedom from stress feel like?”, I became interested in meditation, trying various apps and podcasts. A few months on, I was invited to meditate with friends in a small group. As I practiced more, I felt the stress leave me. My focus, balance and harmony was restoring and I felt better every day. This is when meditation became a regular practice for me.

Since then, I have deepened my practice in various parts of the world, including San Francisco, Thailand and Vietnam. It was in Vietnam, after three weeks of one-to-one meditation practice for many hours each day, that I realised I wanted to share meditation through teaching others. I have been teaching ever since, and I am delighted to be a part of the Haelan team, to share the learning and practice of meditation and mindfulness with others. Since then, I have trained as a reiki practitioner with Haelan Therapy (master teacher level).

I hope to see you on one of our meditation courses soon!
