Whilst on community together at Scargill House, Mike and Shaun developed a unique fusion of mindfulness and song as a way to draw us into spirituality, wellbeing and community. So come and enjoy a week of mindful singing, theology and spiritual practices, which will open your heart to the love of God and connect us to one another.

Some feedback from previous Mindfulness and Song weeks:

"I have felt enfolded in the loving arms of the Father... a warm embrace. The love shown is very caring and relaxing. Some of the lessons I learnt with Shaun and Mike will stay with me for ever. Some of the singing felt like a foretaste of heaven and the best medicine as I recover from Covid and another virus over the last 3.5 months. Thanks is a very inadequate word for my gratitude for this all too brief visit. Be encouraged at the quality of Christian love you demonstrate to all your guests."

"Mike and Shaun delivered a perfect match and a conduit for the Holy Spirit, whose presence, to me, was palpable. I could feel Him move within me, removing pride, judgement and indeed, "opening my heart" to more compassion, love and an understanding and awareness of those around me. "Less of me and more of Him". May He enable me to take this and be like a pebble week thrown in a pond.

"Sharing in the Mindful and Song has been a most wonderful and joyous time. Mike and Shaun could not have been better and brought such skill and also, laughter, into the sessions. My faith has been recharged and hopefully I can find ways to share this in my church community."

"This has been a joyful, moving and deeply spiritual week. The quality of the course leadership has been outstanding. I`ve done things I`ve never dared do or haven`t done for many years - improvised harmonies, written a poem, done something creative in a craft workshop and more. Wonderful worship, too."

"It`s hard to put into words, but I`ve just felt loved and made to feel that my life has some significance. I have hope for a change of direction and to useful to my Creator, finally!"

"Gift of music and fun, Laughter as medicine. Welcome and kindness of community is restorative. Community - part of the Divine Dance of the Holy Trinity. Thank you for a very special week of God`s grace."

"Thank you for a lovely 5 days. Great spiritual, sharing community based on the love of God. Mike and Shaun were great leaders... loved the sessions... wish I could remember more and was better at it. Learning point - everyone is a child of God and should be treated accordingly."
