Mindfulness in a Nutshell

Mindfulness is a well-researched, non-religious and effective means of promoting well-being, and alleviating stress, anxiety and depression.

This informal workshop will introduce Mindfulness – in theory, practice and research – and offer a few tips to remain grounded and steady in the midst of a busy schedule.

The session will be led by Oli Bazin, Associate Teacher at the University of Oxford Mindfulness Centre (www.oxfordmindfulness.org)
