THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED. IT WILL BE RESCHEDULED FOR AUTUMN.
This online course will introduce social workers to mindfulness and meditation practices which can provide space in our days and introduce practices which can act as genuine supports in the art of building resilience, enhancing listening and communication skills and sustaining wellness.
The course will take place over three days from 7.00 - 9.00pm on Tuesday 11th, 18th and 25th August. The facilitator has asked that participants schedule in a provisional date of Tuesday, 1st September in case of broadband failure or facilitator illness on any of the course dates.
The facilitator has also offered a short orientation session on Wednesday, 5th August from 7.00 -7.30pm for those unaccustomed to using Zoom as platform. This session is optional. Please email email@example.com after booking the course if you would like to participate in the session on the 5th.
This three day course will introduce the idea of how mindfulness and meditation practices can provide spaces in our days. It is these spaces that can nourish and replenish our body and minds. It is not about adding to our already top heavy days but about intertwining into our existing routines. But it is not a quick fix and it does take practice. The course will have discussion and theory but above all it will have experience of practice and also small practices which, if you choose you can begin to introduce into your lives. We hope the course will act as a solid starting base and an opportunity to see if this is something for you and provide the signposts to continue this journey if you choose.
The workshop will be facilitated by Niamh Bruce and is suitable for beginners and those with an existing practice in mindfulness.
