CANCELLED - An Introduction to Mindfulness

Apologies, this course is cancelled but other dates and venues are still available please search using code TS 342.


Mindfulness is recognised as one of the most effective skills to improve mental and emotional wellbeing. Studies show that mindfulness training improves health, greater resilience to stress, increased concern for others and an improved ability to pay attention. Reportedly, the government will provide means to teach mindfulness in schools for children aged 8-12 by 2020.
In this course you will learn what mindfulness is and consider how it enables us to:
  • Increase sensory awareness
  • Give greater cognitive control
  • Enhance regulation of emotions
  • Accept transient thoughts and feelings
  • Improve our capacity to regulate attention

Please bring a comfortable rug/yoga mat and cushion for floor work. Floor work is not compulsory and being seated on a chair is the alternative posture for some of the exercises.


Target Audience:
Anyone in the school workforce who wishes to find out more about mindfulness, for their own personal use and to consider how it might benefit their school community

Course Provider:
Ondy Willson – Wellseeing Consultancy

Please note that light refreshments will be provided at this course
