We run 8 week courses for individuals or businesses, mindful pathway days and talks to help you build the skills in meditation and mindful living.
The ethos behind Mindful Pathway is to help you create your own way to a happier and more balanced life. Mindfulness is as much about your own practice as it is the learning in the sessions. We will enable you to integrate the practices into your life so that you can establish what works for you.
Mindfulness is an exciting and fruitful journey to embark on, it is one you can continue for the rest of your life and build on each day. We don’t promise a quick fix but we do promise great teachers to help guide and work with you on your path. Each person will find different meditations and practices useful and will move at their own pace. We endeavour to build a community and provide a supportive ethos and environment so each person can flourish.
Meet the Teachers
Mindful Pathway is a group of experienced meditation teachers who have worked together for a number of years. They all embrace the philosophy of Mindful Pathway and seek to offer comprehensive and non-judgemental teaching to empower others. You won’t find any big egos here but instead, knowledgeable, down to earth and compassionate people.
Ruth Farenga is the Founder of Mindful Pathway and is a qualified Mindfulness Teacher and speaker.
Ruth’s values are openness, connection, trust, love and efficiency. She believes in empowering others and connecting with them so that they can achieve their own strengths and success strategies.
Ruth’s Mindfulness training was completed through the ELK Health Foundation where she achieved her Diploma in Mindfulness Teaching to teach Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) in early 2015. This was the culmination of 3 years of practice, teaching and assessment, and demonstrates a thorough ability to guide participants in the field. Ruth maintains ongoing professional training and retreats to continually develop herself as a teacher and is fortunate to work with the ELK-Health foundation that offers this wider support.
The ethos of Ruth’s mindfulness teaching is to guide participants along their lifelong journey while exploring the self, the world around us and developing practical, personal skills to live by.
