Welcome to Adelaide Mindfulness
Compassion-Based Mindfulness Programs, Workshops and Individual Sessions, assisting you to develop a greater sense of clarity, ease and joy in your everyday life!
Adelaide Mindfulness was founded by Barb Hancock and Tina Gibson.
Central to our approach is to:
Enhance - kindness, connection, creativity, courage and joy
Reduce - anxiety, stress, disconnection and suffering
Our vision is to assist people to live courageous, compassionate and joyful lives. We believe every situation is workable, no matter how uncomfortable or stuck it may seem. We are committed to assisting you to find skills and techniques that ground you, that help find your balance, and that empower you to live an authentic life.
As Jon Kabat-Zinn shares: ‘Mindfulness is the awareness that arises through paying attention on purpose in the present moment with non-judgment’. In this awareness we find compassion, courage and connection; bringing to life the qualities of kindness, curiosity and acceptance which help us make peace with ourselves, others, and the world around us.
We offer Mindful Self-Compassion programs, both in the 8-week and 5-day intensive format. Tina has developed programs and workshops specifically designed for Teachers and primary school students.
We create workshops to meet the needs of specific workplaces, community groups or organisations, and deliver workplace meditation sessions.
Our individual sessions are dynamic and designed around your needs. Everyone is different, therefore no two sessions will ever be the same. What remains constant is the basis for our work together: mindfulness and heartfelt compassionate presence.

“Only when we believe that we are enough will we have the courage to be authentic, vulnerable and imperfect. When we don’t accept ourselves, we shape-shift, turn into chameleons and always hustle for the worthiness we already possess.”
