About our facilitator
Luke Wreford is based in Cambridge, UK and has been exploring mindfulness and natural awareness for over 20 years. In 2014 he completed his training to teach Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, the well established secular programme. Since then he has been designing and facilitating courses in diverse communities and workplaces in London and Cambridge.
His own practice has evolved and has been inspired in particular by the nondual wisdom that many different contemplative traditions have in common. This emphasises interconnectedness, effortlessness, and discovering the innate clarity and unconditional wellbeing that resides within us all. His work now is focused on sharing what he finds to be the most effective, direct and accessible approaches with whoever is interested in seeing for themselves what they have to offer.
Before moving in this direction Luke worked for non-profit organisations on education and environmental issues. While grateful for this experience he felt that much of the time he was working to address symptoms rather than underlying causes, such as dominant assumptions about ourselves and the world that shape institutions, decision making and behaviour. He became interested in the interdependence of inner and outer change, and his current work continues to be infused by a desire to promote forms of wellbeing that are sustainable – both for ourselves and the wider web of life of which we are part.
Luke is a welcoming, kind and encouraging facilitator who gives his students the right amount of guidance whilst providing a safe and peaceful environment. I am a better person for completing this course and can recommend it highly.
Luke created a very good atmosphere: inclusive, fun, entertaining, interesting. Just about perfect.
Luke is a gifted teacher and a trailblazer for the mindfulness movement, with compassion, patience and gentle guidance in abundance.
Mindfulness makes such sense and Luke is able to communicate this with clarity and enthusiasm. I would like to thank him for his kindness and support and recommend him without reserve.

Luke is an excellent trainer – he has a calm and refreshing demeanour and I enjoyed the pace of his teaching.
A brilliant, well-organised course – excellent facilitator whose knowledge and commitment to personalising the experience for each individual was extremely useful.
