Here at NOW, we explore what makes us feel truly alive, creative, thriving and mindful.
We create and host experiences which invite you to connect deeply with your true essence and with the present moment. We believe that when you make the present moment — instead of the past and future — the focal point of your life, your ability to enjoy life soars and real transformation occurs.
Many of us know that mindfulness is scientifically proven to help us deal with stress, anxiety and to bring more focus among many other benefits. At NOW, we explore how we can creatively bring that wisdom into every moment of our day. We inspire opportunities for self-reflection and an understanding of the everyday stresses of modern life. We offer the space to step beyond the daily routine, to take stock and come back into life feeling full, fresh and joyful.
We run a monthly programme of self-development events in London with Psychologies Magazine as well as regular retreats at West Lexham and beyond (see more below). To hear what people have been saying about us, visit our testimonial and press pages, as well as our YouTube Channel.
NOW in Partnership with Psychologies
We have been the nationwide events partner of Psychologies Magazine since 2013, hosting monthly events with the growing NOW/Psychologies tribe. Showcasing experts in wellbeing and self-development, we champion a practical and interactive approach; a fun and engaging way to enrich our lives. Read more about our monthly programme here.
Our NOW Retreats offer the opportunity to dive deep into our programme with 3-7 day residential retreats. Our retreats typically include daily workshops, one-on-one coaching, delicious local food and the unspoilt beauty of nature in West Lexham – the perfect retreat setting to slow down and revitalise in Norfolk.

NOW’s Summer Programmes & Festivals
Since summer 2013, we have held over 12 full festivals bridging creativity and mindfulness, offering over 500 events to the general public. Our festivals offer a range of experiential events with some of the UK’s most thought-provoking artists, writers, poets, musicians, actors and thinkers from Ruby Wax and Oliver Burkeman to new and emerging artists.

NOW Live Events was founded by Jana Stefanovska in 2013. Based in South East London, our aim is to create experiences which surprise and inspire. James Runcie, Head of Literature at Southbank Centre, says: “NOW Live Events are fantastically creative, combining big ideas with great attention to detail, seeking out the undiscovered and the unpredictable, putting on events and retreats that shift perception and change lives for the better.”
