Mindfulness

If you have been paying any attention to the many suggested coping strategies for stressful times, burnout, parenting, anxiety etc., you will have come across the word mindfulness. A popular definition was originally coined by Jon Kabat Zinn who created the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction course at University of Massachusetts Medical School in the 1970s. He defined it as paying attention, with intention and without judgment.

Mindfulness Pop-Up Sessions

Mindfulness is one of those things that is perhaps better understood experientially rather than by defining it or reading about it.

If you’d like to experience it, please feel free to join us at this Zoom link (passcode: mindful) on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 10 a.m. for a 15 minute session.

  • There are no sessions on October 4, 11 and 13.

These sessions involve being led through a mindfulness exercise. Participants typically have their cameras off and their microphones muted so it is a low pressure opportunity to give it a try.
