Ali Lambie



We are happy to be able to announce that Ali has offered to run a Day of Practice and Teaching on Mindful Self-Compassion.

Day of Teaching and Practice

Saturday 14 March 2020

Starts in:


Venue: Oxford Quaker Meeting House, 43 St. Giles, Oxford OX1 3LW

Time: 10:00 – 16:00  (arrivals from 09:30)

Cost: £30 members; £50 non-members.  Donations most welcome!

Facilitator: Ali Lambie. Carole Lacy will support this event.


Ali will offer a day workshop introducing you to key themes and practices of Mindful Self-Compassion so you will leave with a sense of how to practice self-compassion in daily life, understand the science of MSC, begin to motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism and handle difficult emotions with greater ease.

The event is offered in the same spirit as all mindfulness-based approaches with the intention to co-create our time together. We offer a forum for personal formal practice, reflection and a chance to investigate themes that are current for you in your mindfulness practice/teaching. We hope that this time will also allow you to connect with others from your local mindfulness network and build links with CMRP and Bangor University. We look forward to re-connecting with old friends and welcoming new ones.

This event is open to non-Friends of Bangor members who are interested in coming along to connect and to find out more about us. Lunch is not included (but tea/coffee will be provided). Please feel free to bring a packed lunch if you would like to.

Virtual Connection Events

Too far away to attend one of our Connection Events in person? No problem, we have Virtual Connection Events that might suit you very well: every other Tuesday at 12:30, and on the third Monday of the month at 18:30.

Friends of Bangor is an independent group of mindfulness practitioners who have previously engaged with CMRP (Alumni). The FoB team co-lead the CMRP agenda to bring together the mindfulness community and facilitate an engagement process to benefit the wider field. Our intention is that by supporting and fostering a communication platform, mindfulness practitioners on the group can inform CMRP of issues emerging and help shape the provision offered to better meet the community needs and interest.
