'Using Mindfulness and Compassion within the context of health intervention.'

Malvern Mindfulness will present an experiential day of traditional mindfulness practices but with a twist on the
original transcripts. The aim is for a creative day to deepen and strengthen the mindfulness muscle with a generous dose of 
compassion. Within the day there is an opportunity to practice and explore new ways of implementing mindfulness skills for
ourselves and our clients.  They will be incorporating moving and sitting practices alongside transition and mindful eating practices.

Bearing in mind you may already have knowledge of and/or be using mindfulness skills in practice, this is also  a day to revisit the
underlying principles, recent research and theory.  However, it is also a lovely introduction for beginners to explore mindfulness
benefits and difficulties.  At the end of the day there will be time to share and give feedback for the benefit and learning of all.
