SYNOPSIS:

Due to the popularity and excellent feedback from the Mindfulness workshop held in 2015, we will be holding two Mindfulness workshops this year.

Mindfulness-based approaches have generated a great deal of clinical and research interest in recent years. Mindfulness is a generic skill involving training attention and attitude. It has a wide range of solutions to improving immunity, neuroplasticity, epigenetics, and enhanced clinical performance.
