People who practice mindfulness credit it with creating positive change – both within and outside of work. The latest neuroscientific studies back up this anecdotal evidence: suggesting that using mindfulness techniques regularly for just eight weeks produces structural changes in the brain.
Why not come along and experience it for yourself?
Who is this for?
These sessions are aimed at leaders and aspiring leaders from across the University of Westminster. Course leaders, module leaders, Heads of Department, corporate staff and Senior Managers. All are all welcome.
What will you get out of it?
The benefits of mindfulness practice are personal to each individual. However, in addition to the tools, techniques and exercises you will learn, many people find that they
• discover improved capacity to focus attention
• experience raised levels of wellbeing
• find positive effects are also experienced by those they work with
There is also a session on Friday 2 June. You can attend both (ideally), or just one.
These sessions will provide you with the understanding, experience and techniques enabling you to develop – or deepen – a regular mindfulness practice. They will also help you de-stress for the weekend.
