Relational Mindfulness: Bringing Mindfulness into everyday life

Apr 23 2018 Posted: 08:41 IST

You are invited to join us for this free morning workshop “Relational Mindfulness: Bringing Mindfulness into everyday life and relating with others”. 

What is relational mindfulness?

We typically consider mindfulness as something that is done silently, alone and while sitting down. While research has been shown this type of mindfulness to have many positive benefits, many believe mindfulness could also serve us if it could be connected directly to everyday life.

RELATIONAL mindfulness, brings mindfulness from silent sitting alone, into respectful meditative communication with others.

Associate Professor MAREK VICH (bio below) is leading the development of practice and research in this field and will give two workshops at NUI Galway in collaboration with the Mindful Way on Thursday 3rd May in Emily Anderson Concert Hall in the Quadrangle (8 on map).

These 2.5 hour workshops are LIMITED in size to 20 people each so please BOOK EARLY.

We look forward to seeing you there!
