MBSR/Mindfulness Practice Group

These monthly sessions are opportunities for those who have completed an 8 week Mindfulness course or who have an on-going mindfulness practice to meet & be supported in keeping up their practice. Each session offers guidance through both familiar & new practices often based around a mindfulness theme e.g. Finding balance in our lives. It is helpful to let us know if you intend to come along so that we are sure to keep you a space. (Low/no wage concessions)
