A Swirl Live event 25th September, Newcastle upon Tyne
I’m delighted to be offering an introduction to mindfulness practice together with Andy Walton, Founder of Swirl, on 25th September. Details as follows:
Tuning into your breath and focusing your attention is a key first step to overcoming a distressing level of overthinking. Mindfulness is a technique that can strengthen this ability. A practice aimed at using your senses to ground yourself into the here and now. Yet, it’s a practice that takes discipline, perseverance and patience and it’s not a quick fix.
Join Swirl as we take you through key approaches to effective practice, discussing common barriers, busting myths and providing clarity on how it works. The session is led by Gwennie Fraser, a mindfulness teacher with over 25 years of experience and Andy Walton, Community Mental Health Nurse and Swirl Founder.
The session includes takeaway copies of the Swirl Guide to overcoming overthinking to ensure participants build on what they have learnt and continue an empowered outlook.
