Welcome to Mindsprings

Mindsprings was set up by Alistair Appleton to bring basic practices of meditation or mindfulness to people in all different walks of life: students, workers, parents, the stressed and the depressed but also those seeking positive change and optimal living.  We believe the basic life-skill of meditation is useful and beneficial to everyone. It allows us to come back into the freshness of the present moment and unweave those damaging knots of thinking that tangle us all.
