The Roots, a guide for the gentle soul

A very warm welcome to Alder Tree Mindfulness. Owner and founder, Roger Hunt set out on a journey a decade ago, to rediscover the joy of living. Feeling discontented, never really fitting in anywhere and several wake up calls later, he stepped out onto a path of discovery that he shares and supports others on today. Self growth, awareness, acceptance and living a gentle life in a sometimes harsh world have become his hobby, passion and now work. Now based in Derby, he offers workshops, retreats and one to one coaching to help other intuitives, empaths and advocates discover their true authentic passion, purpose and meaning in life, creating a life that is impactful, insightful and contented, with a big dose of self-care and compassion.


In 2017, Roger trained as a mindfulness teacher with one of the leading mindfulness teachers in the UK, Suryacitta of Mindfulness CIC. He takes this wonderful teaching onwards to share the true beauty and deep rooted nature of mindfulness with others and his enthusiasm and passion for this subject shines through his work.

The journey continues. This year, in light of the challenges this world faces Roger is training to become a registered Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction facilitator with Mindfulness UK and will be facilitating 8 week courses very soon.

Introverts, INFJ, Advocates and Intuitives

For Roger, a life changing discovery happened when he realised and accepted his true authentic self and the relatively rare personality type of being an INFJ Advocate. This true acceptance and discovery has brought him to this work and he now specialises in coaching other INFJ, introverts, advocates, empaths and intuitives to live a fulfilled, contented and meaningful life.

“Treat people as if they were what they ought to be and you help them to become what they are capable of being.” Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Alder Tree

Alder Tree Mindfulness has a supportive, online members community, open to anyone that attends events, workshops, courses and retreats. On the 26th May 2020, Roger also launched his weekly episode Podcast, exploring this journey of life and rediscovering the joy of living, available on all major platforms.

Roger hosts regular introduction to mindfulness retreats and has adapted these to be delivered online during the Corona Virus pandemic.

Just like the Alder tree itself, Alder Tree Mindfulness was built to support, return goodness and support others to thrive and flourish in often challenging times.
