The simple practice of mindfulness is known to bring a transformational change in our way of being with our self, others and the world. This short course encourages participants to bring an open, curious, enquiring attitude. In this free taster session, students will explore their lived experience of the mindfulness practices within a respectful, friendly and non-judgmental group setting.
