Learn simple & effective skills from Vidyamala Burch OBE, the world’s leading expert on mindfulness for pain

If you’ve been living with pain or illness, you know it’s not just about the physical discomfort. There’s the disruption to daily life. The grief over the plans you had and what you can no longer do. The isolation of not being able to participate in the community the way you used to or the feeling that many people struggle to understand what you are experiencing. The fear that life won’t ever feel as full or joyful as it once did.

World-renowned mindfulness teacher Vidyamala Burch OBE has spent decades developing a proven evidence-based approach that uses the mind and the breath to help people deal with pain and illness, reduce their suffering, and live meaningful lives.

In this exclusive Mindfulness Program, Vidyamala introduces the key skills and lessons to help you manage pain and illness. These simple tools have been proven to be transformative and highly effective for thousands of people globally from beginners to seasoned experts.

This easy-to-follow Mindfulness Program delivers a powerful 7-day course, curated meditations, 2-minute micro practices for in-the-moment support, and compelling Q+A’s to help you get more out of your daily practice, without taking time out of your busy day.

In this Mindfulness Program, you will learn:

1. The Bravery of Presence

The central insight of learning to take difficulty one moment at a time, as a life-changing doorway to greater ease.

2. Pain without Suffering

Learn how to divide experience into Primary Pain and Secondary Suffering, and how to let go of suffering caused by resistance whilst enlisting breathing and gravity to help on the journey.

3. Handle your Thoughts & Emotions

Learn the crucial mindfulness skill of how to look ‘at’ your thoughts and emotions rather than ‘from’, providing you with much greater perspective.

4. Balance and Compassion

Cultivate balance by learning how to widen your ‘window of tolerance’ between the extremes of denial and overwhelm, while also learning how to bring compassion towards your experience.

5. Widening the View, Appreciating Pleasure

Learn to enrich your experience enormously by widening your field of awareness so that you can learn to appreciate the beauty and pleasure that sits alongside pain or illness.

6. Being Soft IS Being Strong

Explore how true strength comes from learning how to be soft and pliable around difficulty - yielding awareness into the constant flow of sensations.

How Your Free 3-day Access Works

7-day Course

Meet Your Teacher Vidyamala Burch OBE

Vidyamala is a mindfulness & compassion teacher, coach, award-winning author, and co-founder of Breathworks.

She started meditating in 1985, after a series of spinal injuries in her late teens left her with chronic pain and partial paraplegia.

She found such transformative healing in mindfulness that she devoted herself to study and practice. Eventually, she developed a Mindfulness-based Pain & Illness Management programme which has been recognized by The British Pain Society.

To date, her evidence-based Mindfulness-based Pain & Illness Management (MBPM) approach has reached over 100k people around the world and is recognized by health boards globally.

Vidyamala hopes to pass on the tools that have helped her to reclaim a full and meaningful life.
