Mindful Christmas December 2022

Course Description: Give yourself the gift of your presence this Christmas at the Sanctuary. 

Christmas can be a wonderful festive time for so many, but it can also be a stressful one. 

Join Claire at the Sanctuary for this three-week course leading up to Christmas week. 

Drawing on teachings from Jon Kabat Zinn’s 8-week MBSR programme and inspired by Dr. Rick Hanson’s book Neurodharma, these three weeks will give participants the opportunity to bring some awareness to the triggers and stressors around this time and perhaps garner a better understanding of how these can impact the mind and body.  Each session will offer a space to cultivate some peace and ease at this time with practical mindfulness based skills and meditations, all within the tranquil surrounds of the Sanctuary. 

Day & Date: Monday evenings: 5th, 12th, 19th December 2022

Time: 7.00pm – 8.30pm

Price: €50.00
