It can often be easy to rush through life without stopping to notice everything around you, especially in the current climate. Paying more attention to the present moment, to your own thoughts and feelings, and to the world around you can help to improve your mental wellbeing.
This series of interactive mindfulness sessions will focus on a different topic each month based on the foundations of mindfulness–practice. Join Dr Carolyn Blair for a 15-20 minute interactive discussion on the chosen topic and a 20-25 minute period of mindfulness based practice.
If you can’t make all sessions, don’t worry, feel free to come as your diary permits.

“The best way to capture moments is to pay attention. This is how we cultivate mindfulness. Mindfulness means being awake. It means knowing what you are doing.” — Jon Kabat-Zinn
