ABOUT ME

Hi, I'm Josh. I came to mindfulness in my twenties at a challenging time and found that it gave me a new sense of calm and positivity. As my interest grew I attended meditation courses, joined a Buddhist study group and helped facilitate mindfulness classes and residential retreats. In 2018, I completed the Zenways 100hr Mindfulness and Meditation For Health & Wellbeing Teacher Training taught by Zen Master Daizan Skinner. 

I have since delivered mindfulness classes at London South Bank University, Paramount Pictures, WeWork, Arup, and in my local community. My aim is to bring the simple practice of meditation to the workplace and beyond, and to help people find peace and clarity in their everyday lives.

I am based in North London and also work as a musician and guitar tutor. Check out my music at www.joshgeffin.com

TESTIMONIALS

I wanted to thank you for a great course. I did not really have any expectations from mindfulness practice but it has been very helpful to deal with stress as well as have a more positive outlook towards life. Your approach to teaching is also a stress-reducer – walking into class and hearing your calm, reflective presentation was enough to put me in the right frame of mind!

Siddharth

I really enjoyed the course and recommend it to beginners. I went in knowing very little and feel like I have a much better understanding of mindfulness and myself afterwards. You created a calm environment, encouraged us to ask questions and we shared some really useful and non-judgemental discussions. Thank you.

Ciaran

I found Josh's Mindfulness course very helpful for dealing with stress/anxiety. We practised a variety of meditation techniques which I intend to continue. The emailed audio meditations and informative handouts were also very good.

Clive

This introduction to Mindfulness has been a huge benefit to me in relieving stress and improving my general wellbeing. As a result of the positive effects to my improved health, I feel it has also improved my creative work and helped me manage the daily stressful tasks with a calm mind. It has been an incentive to practice meditation on a daily basis. Highly recommend.
