Mindfulness is “the intentional, non-judgmental and non-reactive focus of attention on the emotions, thoughts and sensations occurring in the present moment”. In recent years, mindfulness practice has been increasingly employed to alleviate a variety of mental and physical conditions. There is an increasing evidence base for its benefits.
This one day workshop is specifically designed for healthcare professionals in primary care who wish to use mindfulness for their own personal benefit but also to raise awareness of it as a potential support for patients. We will be exploring theory, history, evidence, techniques and daily practice of Mindfulness, emphasising its relationship to health and wellbeing.
