FREE taster sessions for UK charities during lockdown

Having worked in the voluntary sector for many years I know the pressures that many staff will be under in lockdown and have been during the whole period of the pandemic. I also know that many charities are doing their best to provide extra support to their people.

Mindfulness has something to offer, even in small doses. It offers a chance to learn and explore proven methods for managing stress as it presents itself. A taster can also open the door to a ongoing practical method of building resilience.

If you or your charity would like to take up the offer of a 1 hour taster session, led by Bob Chase, email me ASAP offer@mindfulinthecity.co.uk

taster sessions - now available online via Zoom

"Really enjoyed the taster session and liked Bob’s guidance and approach"

"For me it was very interesting to hear about the concept that mindfulness is something that is done actively, and not an attempt to stop thinking"

It was terrific - thanks! (ORBIS)

Our taster sessions are a great introduction to mindfulness for the curious. Participants leave with an understanding of the theory behind mindfulness and an experience of mindfulness building practices.

Over one and a quarter hours we will cover the science behind mindfulness and why it is being embraced by health professionals in the UK. We will introduce you to the key concepts and techniques that you can begin using right away.

Following the session participants are given access to a special resources web page that includes a downloadable audio guide and information of how to take their interest further. They are also invited to attend the monthly free online Practice Sessions offered by MITC.

for organisations

A Taster Session is a useful initiative to gauge the interest of colleagues in mindfulness. We conduct a feedback survey after each session that is shared with the client. Clients can choose to follow up with more tasters for more staff and or move on to offer a 4 or 8 week course either on or off-line. See "Mindfulness First Steps" 4 week online course.

If you would like to book a taster session for staff in your organisation, please get in contact. We are always happy to design sessions to meet your needs.
