Fay Adams & Angie Ball

Fay Adams

Fay Adams has trained to teach mindfulness under the guidance of Rob Nairn. She now teaches around the UK and South Africa, mainly for the Mindfulness Association and for Holy Isle. She is based on the Holy Isle at the Word Centre for Peace and Health, where she is a long term resident. She is currently helping Rob Nairn to edit his upcoming book on insight. Fay was originally drawn to mindfulness practice because of her debilitating chronic pain. Mindfulness has enabled her to work with the pain and to live a full life again. Her experience of mindfulness has developed beyond pain management and is now the foundation of her daily and spiritual life.

Angie Ball

Angie has studied and practiced Tibetan Buddhism at Kagyu Samye Ling in the Scottish Borders for over 30 years. Within that time she has learnt Tibetan Buddhist practices including that of Mindfulness. She also trained for over 20 years in a comprehensive therapeutic process entitled 'Tara Rokpa Therapy'. Initially developed at Samye Ling, this combines the wisdom and integrity from both East and Western psychological traditions.

In addition to being an experienced Tara Rokpa workshop facilitator, she is a trained counsellor in Transpersonal Psychology and N.L.P (Neuro Linguistic Programming), and a qualified massage therapist (ITEC). She has been teaching and running workshops since the 80's in both the private and public sector, throughout the UK and Europe.

Angie has completed a two year Mindfulness and Compassion teacher training programme with South African tutor and author, Rob Nairn and is currently undertaking an MSc in Mindfulness with Aberdeen University. She runs weekend workshops and 8 week sessions in the practice of Mindfulness.

Coming from a creative and community arts background, her teaching style is interactive, experiential, fun and informative as well as giving a strong emphasis on practice and the beneficial journey of self-discovery.  .
