A Taste of Mindfulness (online)

Teacher: Craig Henen, Lisa Firer
Cost: Donation to support the BRC during the COVID-19 lockdown
Dates: Thursday 17 September 2020 - Thursday 17 September 2020

craig henenlisa firerDuring this online retreat we will introduce you to Mindfulness: the development of moment-to-moment, non-judgmental awareness. We will taste different practices together and explore ways to bring this powerful way of being into our daily lives.
Mindfulness practice enables us to relate with more centeredness to whatever is unfolding and makes it possible to work creatively with the stresses and demands of daily living, especially at this time we find ourselves in. This retreat will be based on the work of Dr Jon Kabat-Zinn, founder of the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction programme.

Thursday 17th September | 10am-3pm including 1 hour mindful lunch break Register
