Introduction to Mindfulness

Following the success of these sessions, I am delighted to be able to offer you another opportunity to attend virtual Mindfulness Workshops with Helen Rabbitt. Session one is an introduction to the benefits of mindfulness with session two introducing more mediation techniques with specific mediations as tools for supporting wellbeing and positive mental health.

Mindfulness has been recognised as providing improvements in our wellbeing and is beneficial whether we enjoy the practise or not. It can be done anywhere as all we need is our breath. This session can be used as a stand alone or in conjunction with an organisation’s internal Wellness Strategy. The sessions are interactive and contain specific meditations that can be done by individuals at their desk as a “mindful“  break if they are feeling overwhelmed and/or stressed. The techniques can be used as an anchor to bring their awareness back to the present and help them feel grounded. All attendees will need to bring a raisin or a square of chocolate for the mindful eating exercise

Helen Rabbitt started her career in the pharmaceutical industry in sales then moved into training and management. This started a lifelong passion for L&D which Helen has continued over the last  25 years.
