By popular demand we ran a further Mindfulness Day with Frank Liddy on Saturday 8th March. Those who attended were bowled over by Frank's approach.
Objectives of the day:
Experience and learn to practice mindfulness stress reduction skills.
Rcognize how simple breathing exercises can be used in times of stress.
Cultivate a stress response based on greater awareness of choices as opposed to stress reactivity.
