In July 2021 I was ordained into the Triratna Buddhist Order after 8 years in training and have a new Buddhist name Lilasuri. I am gently phasing Claire out, please bear with me, as this will take time.

'We were already doing well in regards to well-being and staff seemed happy. However it was great to review this with Claire and what we found was there were areas where staff felt we could be doing better, its these small details, these underlying attitudes that Claire was able to bring to the surface. Through this process we have created a stronger culture of transparency and trust and staff are happy and motivated by the changes we have implemented'. Kath Rosen, CEO, The Orchard Project

Claire delivers insightful and enjoyable workshops which make mindfulness accessible and strips it of any misconceptions. We asked Claire to deliver her workshop to both our internal team and a group of external clients and it was extremely well received by both groups. We would highly recommend Wild Awake Mindfulness to any team looking to improve stress management and promote mental well-being. James Massey, Director, TACE Ltd

Research shows that having a regular meditation practice increases your awareness and improves concentration, you are likely to sleep better, it will help you to manage stress more effectively, increases your immune system and gives you more balanced emotions with the reduction of anxiety and low mood. Mindfulness significantly reduces the risk of workplace burnout which is now recognised by the World Health Organisation as an 'occupational disease'.

Looking for an alternative Team Away Day? Forest Immersion for Teams
We have worked with many organisations from the public and private sector in creating Forest Immersion experiences for teams. We recognise that being out in nature offers a neutral space where people can be with colleagues in a non-work setting which is important in building relationships and trust. Having contact with nature helps us to feel calm and connected which means we are able to engage in a deeper way more than if we are inside a purpose built environment.

'Thank you for Monday. Doing the session with you before the strategy meeting in the afternoon meant that the team felt connected and relaxed, which after such long time apart during COVID was really important especially as people had felt nervous about coming back into the workplace. All the team have been positive on their feedback; It’s the best mindfulness session I’ve attended!! Claire was relaxed and that created a nice vibe and a real open and honest environment, which is credit to her demeanour' Ashleigh Owen, Visitor Team Manager, The Whitworth
