Event description

Description

After the overwhelming response to the taster event we have decided to put on a 2nd taster for those of you that missed out on tickets for the first one. This will be a repeat of the first taster, so if you are booked for that one, there is no need to book for this one.

Please note that this particular workshop is for those working in Secondary Schools / Further Education colleges only. (Edit: It is now also open to staff from Plymouth Marjon University and the Next Steps SW project).

This is a FREE of charge 2-hour taster session in mindfulness run by Anna Murch (Mindfulness into Schools Project). She has been fully trained by Mindfulness into schools and this session is aimed at teaching / support staff in secondary schools. The session will be based specifically around the stressful situations teaching staff may encounter working in secondary schools and how to cope with them effectively.

Mindfulness is a state of meditation, repeatedly practicing it will significantly improve your wellbeing and is an effective way of managing distress and ordering your thoughts. It involves being fully present in the moment and dedicating all your attention to the here and now, fully accepting difficult situations rather than pushing them away.

This free of charge session is a taster for a weekly programme taking place in January-February 2018 that will also be free of charge. These events are funded by the Next Steps SW project, a Government-funded programme of which Marjon is a consortium member.

About the trainer: Anna Murch has completed the mindfulness teacher training course with the centre of mindfulness research and practice, Bangor University, Exeter University and Mindfulness into Schools Project. She delivers mindfulness programs at the Sharpham Trust and in schools across Devon and Cornwall. She is also listed on the UK listing of Mindfulness Teachers.

Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided upon arrival at 4:45pm. The session will begin at 5pm.
