Mindfulness is a way of paying attention to the present moment with an attitude of kindness, openness and acceptance. Evidence shows that learning the skill of mindfulness helps to manage stress and mood difficulties and supports wellbeing. The course is experiential; however no-one need do anything they are not comfortable with. There will also be time to chat to other course participants and get to know each other as a group.
