Join Dr. Marie Payne, Clinical Psychologist for an exploration and pracitcal skills workshop on Mindfulness.
What is Mindfulness ? It can be easy to rush through life without stopping to notice much. Paying more attention to the present moment – to your own thoughts and feelings, and to the world around you – can improve your mental wellbeing. Some people call this awareness “mindfulness”. Mindfulness can help us enjoy life more and understand ourselves better. You can take steps to develop it in your own life.
