Mindfulness Workshops in Byron Bay


Join an inspiring community for a mindfulness-based workshop every month at Sustainable Valley. Learn mind and body skills and access inner resources that will help you live and lead with greater awareness, confidence, and resilience. Within each workshop, we’ll explore the mind and body connection to help you grow in your ability to engage more fully, act with purpose, and awaken the best in yourself.


Our methodology is grounded on the concept of learning by doing and focuses on helping you take courageous actions based on your values. This mind-body approach is science-backed with practices from positive psychology and Acceptance and Commitment Training (ACT).


You will learn new skills through a variety of methods including:

  • facilitated group discussion and activities

  • practical tools that you can use in the class and ‘take away’ with you

  • self-reflection activities

  • meditation practices

  • visualisation practices


  • Handouts to support self-inquiry

  • Audio links to key mindfulness exercises introduced in the workshop


Cultivating Mindfulness

WEDNESDAY, 10th April  

6:00 - 8:00pm

An introduction to the science and art of Mindfulness, designed to help you better understand how the practice of mindfulness can benefit your overall well-being, confidence, and ability to experience life more fully. Within the workshop, you’ll learn practical techniques and skills to help you live with greater awareness, more fully engage with your here-and-now experience, and how to access a consistent place to observe your changing internal experiences.

Creating Mindspace

WEDNESDAY, 1st may  

6:00 - 8:00pm

An exploration of the workings of the mind and the stories we tell ourselves, designed to help you separate from your thoughts rather than getting all caught up in them. Learn how mindfulness skills and mind-body techniques can help you focus your attention, unhook from a busy mind, let thoughts come and go as they please, and lessen the negative impact of unhelpful thinking.

Translating Body Talk


6:00 - 8:00pm

An exploration of the language of the body and its constant communication with us, designed to help you change the way you relate to uncomfortable emotions and sensations. Learn mind-body skills to help you tune into your body, and truly listen, so you can receive the information available to you about what you need in any given moment. This is a safe and supportive space to talk about the feelings and sensations we don’t always get to talk about.

Calming your Inner Critic


6:00 - 8:00pm

One of the most important and powerful relationships we can nurture is our relationship with self.  Still many of us can relate to critical self-talk, holding the belief that it will motivate us to perform better and achieve what we want. Join us to learn about the scientific connection between mindfulness and self-compassion. You’ll walk away with skills to motivate yourself though kindness rather than criticism.  

Acting with Purpose

WEDNESDAY, 7th August

6:00 - 8:00pm

An exploration of what matters to you in the big picture and what fuels your choices, designed to help you make empowered and wholistic decisions. Within the workshop, you’ll learn mindfulness techniques to help you increase your ability to recognize choice points and take courageous action guided by your values - even when it’s difficult or uncomfortable.
