Mindfulness for Carers

Charity News 14 October 2021

Carers are more than half way through their 8 week Mindfulness Course with Breathworks tutor, Catherine Hawkins.

The course itself includes; a balance of teaching, questions and discussion, guided meditation, practices to help participants develop mindfulness and self-compassion to relieve pain and anxiety, supporting mindful movement practice.

Catherine says, “I had a moment today to take a few images of the venue, Kingsleigh Methodists Church (Leigh) all set up for the Mindfulness for Carers Health Course. Today’s sessions was all about noticing the small pleasures in life. Seeing these lovely autumn berries in the little garden behind the church were a delight for two of the carers.”

We hope all the carers are reaping from the benefits of the Mindfulness course and learning support skills and practices to help in their caring roles.
