WORKSHOP SERIES: Mindfulness and Depression
In this workshop series, led by Mindfulness Instructor Andrew Safer, we will explore our tendency to dwell on the negative and be self-critical, and ways that mindfulness practice can help us turn the tide towards a more holistic, positive, and appreciative way of being.
Several different practices will be introduced and we will do them together, discuss our impressions in a safe space, where confidentiality has been agreed.
Each session will include a Q & A following the presentation.
