Mindfulness ways to flourish and thrive

with Willem Kukyen, Director of Oxford University’s Mindfulness Centre & Jem Shackleford, Mindfulness teacher, Inward Bound Mindfulness Education UK (iBme UK)

This workshop is for all those who nurture, teach and care for others and introduces the benefits of using mindfulness to support mental, physical and emotional wellbeing.  It will include a brief examination of what mindfulness is, how it works, learning some simple mindfulness practices and how they can be used to improve learning, development and growth. Hopefully, it will provide you with a greater understanding of ways in which you can explore the use of mindfulness in your organisation, school or family to help you and those you support and care for to flourish and thrive.
