Traditional Mindfulness Training Day Workshop
Spiritual Roots and Clinical Applications with Dr Elliot Cohen Chartered Psychologist
The day will include a comprehensive introduction to a wide variety of mindfulness meditation practices; sitting, standing and moving – so there should be something to suit everyone.
We will explore the practice of mindfulness for effectively treating stress, anxiety states and depression.
The workshop will also feature the Hold and Release Practice; a practice pioneered by Dr Cohen, and featured on TV’s Made in Leeds’ ‘Everyday Yoga with Helena’, which is a gentle and accessible way to demonstrate the relationship between one’s posture, breath and state of mind.

Dear Dr Cohen,
I write to thank you for the private Mindfulness class that you kindly made time for recently.
You made the learning relevant and enjoyable and gave tips on how to overcome common barriers to progress. You took time to go through the techniques with me and answered my numerous questions with great patience and wisdom.
Needless to say, I will be in contact soon to arrange further sessions. I greatly appreciate your help and would highly recommend your Mindfulness training.
Many thanks and with best wishes
From senior Buddhist Monk – Venerable Akurala Samitha, Dhamma Nikethanaya Buddhist Academy, Centre for Education, Meditation, Psychotherapy and Counselling
I am deeply convinced concerning his profound and academic understanding of Buddhist Perspectives in Meditation Psychology & Psychotherapy, in addition to his academic qualifications and personal practical experiences in Western Psychology and Psychotherapy. Dr Cohen has a broad understanding about all the different Buddhist Schools and especially Theravada Buddhism.
I wish him all the best for the benefit of a needy humanity!
