WORKSHOP 6

Mindfulness - Taster Workshop

THIS SESSION INCLUDES
  • A short presentation on what mindfulness is (and what it isn’t)

  • Research into the benefits of mindfulness

  • Experiential mindfulness exercises led by the facilitator. These include: Mindfulness of Eating exercise, allowing participants to experience an activity in the here-and-now; and Mindfulness of Breath and Body, introducing present moment awareness through paying attention to physical sensations and the movement of breath in the body

  • Q & A based on the experiential activities

  • Short mindfulness practices that participants can start to use in their lives

 

Participants will leave the session with a clear understanding of what mindfulness entails, how it can benefit them, and how to start their own daily mindfulness practice. The benefits of attending a 6-8 week mindfulness course will also be discussed.

 

This is an engaging, dynamic and potentially life-changing session.
