Mindfulness Taster Session
Nov 29 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

Mindfulness is all about living in a way that supports us to get the most out of life – to live fully, rather than just survive.  Learning mindfulness has been shown to help with managing stress, anxiety and low mood.  Many people feel that being more mindful helps them to be aware of the natural world and to have a greater appreciation of the environment.  Growing a more mindful way of being in life requires commitment, training and lots of practice – come along to this Taster session to find out how to begin!

£10 per person / £8 conc
