About the event

All are welcome to join James and Reverend Caroline Downs for a morning to explore what it means to cultivate a “Compassionate Mind” in our day to day lives.

James (Caroline’s son) is a psychological therapist with experience of running Compassion Focussed Therapy groups and is involved in research using this approach at University College London.

This friendly and morning will include some introductory ideas from Compassion Focussed Therapy and a chance to try simple ways to put these into practice. No prior knowledge is necessary, just come as you are.

Practical details: 

St Michael's is on major bus routes, and there is only limited parking nearby. You are welcome to arrive from 10am for refreshments before we start at 10.30am. There will be a short break in the middle of the practice and some materials to take away with you should you wish to. 

There will be no pressure to contribute during the morning, or be open with others attending, just an invitation to try some simple exercises should you wish. 

If you have any concerns about whether this may be suitable for you, or there is anything we can do to make it easier for you to take part, please get in touch. 

There is no charge to attend this morning retreat, but if you do want to contribute to the costs you are welcome to donate as you feel with proceeds to the church. This is extremely helpful, if you are able to!


  • 1 space

    There is also no pressure or obligation to donate towards the costs of the event, this is just an option should you be in a position to do so. There is also no need to bring the ticket along with you as there will be a litter register!
