Gateways to Presence (Mindfulness in the time of Covid)

Michal George

It is said that healing can only occur when we are able to be present where we have been absent. Mindfulness is the art of being present. And mindful breathing is one of the gateways to presence itself. This seminar will be an investigation of how the mechanisms of mindfulness inform personal transformation and wellbeing in times of stress. The session will include an exploration of the following key points:

  • An introduction to mindfulness
  • The purpose of mindfulness
  • The science behind the theories
  • The key points to practising meditation
  • A taste of mindfulness in practice
