Cannock Chase Retreat Reviews

‘As a busy mum of two young boys, it’s a real challenge to find headspace and, as a consequence, I often feel very stressed. I’ve tried several different retreats in the past, but I believe that this one has actually set me on the right path. Adam is very down to earth and accepting of the pressures we all face in modern society. There’s no suggestion that we need to opt out but that we can find a peaceful space within us, despite the chaos and information overload of the outside world. He introduces simple techniques and realistic targets to help you start experiencing your life in a fuller way. Everyone should try this course – the world would be a happier place as a result!’

Review from mindful course

Just to say thank you for running the course. It has been really informative and your humor has been entertainingly memorable!

Wishing you happiness and good wishes

With gratitude


I just wanted to say thank you so much for the classes in Coventry. I really enjoyed them & found the very useful.



My husband completed the Mindspace course in Solihull, he found it so beneficial that he did it again… he introduced a family member as he wanted to share the benefits that he gleaned.

The classes were very well structured and thought through, the environment was relaxing and the group very welcoming.

In my hubby’s words ‘Adam has such a lovely demeanour, you can sense his enthusiasm to help others.. he makes you feel relaxed by simply talking to him – what a lovely guy!”

Needless to say he is now scheduled to complete the next course of Mindspace+. (My beloved does not have Facebook and asked me to contribute this on his behalf)
Best Wishes,


Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed and benefited from the beginner’s course in Coventry.

Review from the 8 Week Mindful Course.

‘This 8 week course has had nothing but positive impacts on my life and, by the sounds of it the same result has been reached by all others who took part on the course with me. In 8 weeks I have listened and made notes on the classes and have found the following impacts: I am more calm and thoughtful, I listen to others with greater care, I take more notice of my body’s needs, I can deal with stressful situations with more ease, I feel more determines to enjoy all aspects of life and I spend more of my day ‘awake’.

Each week focuses on a different aspect of meditation and the body which all link together to create a more mindful and peaceful life. Adam starts each class with a meditation and then, in the most wonderfully calm way takes the class in a new direction and gets the class thinking about the way we live our lives. He explains the importance of the practices and how it can benefit us and then teaches a new practice to try.

The explanations are always clear but if you are un-sure Adam is more than willing to answer any questions. Each week I come out feeling like a different person with a new outlook to consider and reflect upon.

This course if perfect if you just want an hour relaxation each week, to take yourself away from the stress of life and calm your mind and body. If you want to take this further like I did, you slowly incorporate each practice into your day-to-day life. In doing this, it is almost like looking in a whole new light. I now wake up 20 minutes earlier each day to spend 5 minutes stretching and 15 minutes meditation. I then spend more time eating and enjoying my food without being distracted from modern technology which was a regular occurrence before. This gives me a great start to the day and energises me for the tasks ahead.

This course doesn’t just help with the mind, it takes you into the realisation of how we can tune ourselves to know the body to see what it needs and when it needs rest. Some practices also include ways to relax the body which is constantly under tension without us realising it.

I would highly recommend this course to anyone whether you want to reduce stress, develop and expand your mind, know your body more, relax or just give meditation a go.’

Feedback from Mindfulness in Schools Session

Visit the Meditation in School site to discover the feedback from Elmhurst Ballet School.

Adam Dacey ran a mindfulness session for a large group of Elmhurst students during Enrichment. The students were shown and then tried a number of coping strategies to help them deal with stress or anxiety before exams or auditions. Adams teaching style went at just the right pace to keep the students focused on mindfulness for everyday life. The students found the session helpful and enjoyable. (Anneli Peavot)
