Introduction to Mindfulness

23 January 2024 1:00pm–4:00pm

Join this online course to gain an understanding of what mindfulness is. Learn about starting to develop your own mindfulness routine.

This course explores the ways mindfulness:

  • helps to develop awareness and to live more fully in the present moment
  • refocuses thinking
  • tunes out past and future worries
  • helps to be fully present in the now aware of where you are and what you are doing.

Learn about what mindfulness is and how mindfulness improves overall health and well-being and helps to develop attitudes that contribute to a happy and satisfied life. It has been shown in clinical trials to have beneficial effects on both physical and mental wellbeing, and in relationships with ourselves and others.

This course takes place via MS Teams on Tuesday 23 January 2024 from 1pm to 4pm.
