An introduction to mindfulness (16-25)
Face to Face Discovery College Courses (for 16-25 year olds)
Mindfulness is a skill which we can all learn. It involves an ability to become aware of what is happening in the present, moment by moment rather than being on automatic pilot, without worrying and judging. Being mindful provides us with opportunity to respond to difficult events and situations in new ways.
This introductory workshop, delivered in partnership with Spirit in Mind by Pastoral and Spiritual Care’s Nirmala, looks at the origins of mindfulness, core practices and its potential to be used to combat stress. Together, we will explore the various tools and techniques used to gain a better understanding of mindfulness and its purpose.
