Lots happening in South London in relation to mindfulness in Autumn 2014. The Dragon Cafe will be hosting an 11 week Body in Mind Mindfulness Training program led by Tamara Russell, commencing September 29th. These one hour sessions cover a short practice, a piece of theory about mindfulness training, some information about the underlying neuroscience and then an illustrative exercise to tie it all together. This format has been tested last summer at Dragon Cafe with positive feedback from participants. Thanks to Sarah and the Dragon Crew for their courage and committment to mindfulness at the Dragon Cafe. This BMT approach has been developed over the years by Tamara and a two published papers (Russell et al., 2011 and Russell and Tatton-Ramos, 2014) describe the theory that underpins this mindful movement approach.
Also, November 3rd in Stockwell, a World Mental Health event. A mindfulness taster session open to all. This work is supported by Peer led mindfulness training within South London and Maudsley Trust. Information can be found here.
