Welcome from Alistair

Hello! As you may know, I've been teaching since 2004, all over Europe. I've led hundreds of courses, connecting to thousands of people. And I've wanted to offer the courses online for a long time. 

In this extraordinary time of global uncertainty, anxiety is high. So we're first offering the Mindsprings anxiety courses to help. Along with the new course 'Tapping into Freedom'. 

There's a free mini-course for the anxiety courses, which teaches a really powerful way to cut through your worries.

  • once you sign up and the course is released you have access to the material for ever
  • There are video talks from Alistair, demonstrations of the practices and discussion of issues arising.
  • Slide show presentations make the material easy to process. There are quizzes to check you've mastered everything as you go along. 
  • You can access Alistair by email but also through in-course discussions throughout your learning. 
  • Alongside each course is a community forum where you can share your experience with others, broach questions to Alistair and class mates, and remain connected long after you've worked through the material. 
  • Self-study students get additional bonus material in the form of guided meditations, recorded lectures and a constantly updated resource page.

Feedback from students of the course

“I’ve been on a fantastic course. Enjoyed every part of it. So informative and relaxing. Alistair who runs it is super. It’s amazing how your outlook changes bit by bit after each section. You suddenly realise your smiling more and your mind and body seem more settled. I wondered if I would understand it . Would it be relatable to me. Yes. Yes. To both. I’ve learnt more from this than any other anxiety method I’ve tried. And I’ve tried loads. THIS HAS HELPED. PLEASE TRY IT. Life is out there to be enjoyed. I’ve spent too much of it worrying about anxiety. Freedom !!!”


“This is a course for Everyone.... Alistair has taken mountains of research and teachings and translated them into an easy to understand form, which together with the many physical practices throughout the course, combine to offer an invaluable toolkit for navigating this modern world of ours. A truly wonderful experience, thank you. Máirín.”


“Alistair is obviously someone that has been there when it comes to Anxiety, and in his openness, he clearly explains tips, techniques, and the various theories around anxiety to help you gain an understanding of why and what happens. You can interact with other members, and also Alistair for support. so you are not alone in dealing with those monsters of anxiety. Most importantly you feel you are learning from someone that has experienced similar, and wishes to only share what he himself has learnt, and teach it in order to benefit others. ”


“What is special about the Mindsprings approach is that it gives you techniques that allow you to work with the way your body responds to anxiety. It's been a game-changer for me and has given me an optimism I haven't felt for a long time. It's allowed me to accept that I'm always going to feel anxiety, but that if I work with these practices the effects of that anxiety on my life will be significantly diminished.”



  • When does the course start and finish?

    The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish.

  • How long do I have access to the course?

    How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own. I encourage you to work through it as many times as useful and re-visit it often.

  • What if I am unhappy with the course?

    I don't want you to be unhappy at all! The last thing I want is the course to make you anxious. So, if you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 30 days and Mindsprings will give you a full refund. But I'm confident that you'll be very happy indeed to have discovered our work.

  • Couldn't I just read some books and do this on my own?

    Yes, of course, book-learning is great. And I have studied a great deal in the field of pyschotherapy, neuroscience, human physiology and Buddhist psychology. But as we'll explore, anxiety breeds in our thinking mind. And for me, getting some direct coaching on how to stay in the body and find non-thinky ways of dealing with it was a break-through... So let me save you time and dead-ends by sharing my experience direct...

  • I want to take the course but I don't know if I can afford it?

    I know that money is an issue for many of us. And at Mindsprings our inspiration is to help everyone whether they're wealthy or not. We think that we have priced the courses fairly and ask those who can afford them to help those who can't by paying the full course-fee. And there's a payment schedule to help spread the load. However, we also have a number of bursaries available to those struggling financially, so please contact us to ask about financial aid. (The contact button is below).
