The sessions are free for all to join, where Patrick Baigent will introduce methods from his practical guide ‘The Gears of Mindfulness’ and his accessible One Minute Mindfulness approach with a Q&A. With an emphasis on making mindfulness effective, this is something simple and beneficial you’ll have for life.
