Trauma – Sensitive Mindfulness in Covit 19 days.

In these days of social distancing and self isolating we know that our best way of showing solidarity and building community is to stay apart. I am therefore moving all of my work online. I also know we need to experience and build community, I am delighted to a half day online Mindfulness Practise workshop on Sat March 28th, and I will do the same workshop again on Sat May 30th . I have previously participated in this workshop online myself, and I am happy that it is a really resourceful, grounding experience for this time.
