About the Event
What's it all about?
Being mindful helps us to engage in life as it happens, rather than being tangled up in the past or worrying about the future.
During this three-hour workshop, we will learn simple mindfulness skills to help experience deep relaxation.
- Mindfulness Skills - including breathing for relaxation, mindful eating, turning down the inner critic, managing emotions, exploring mantras/affirmations
- Meditation Practice - deep relaxation and meditation using guided visualisation
