There will be two mindfulness courses starting in September for Carers which are funded by Brighton council and the CCG
These courses are designed to help Carers manage their caring responsibilities by providing tools and an approach that is proven to help people manage stress, anxiety and low moods and to bring a range of other benefits. Mindfulness approaches are being used in the NHS, in business, in schools and in the police force to help people build resilience and manage the challenges they face at work and in their lives generally.
Details of the two groups are as follows:
Afternoons with Tara 9 weeks from Sep 26th- Nov 21st at Evolution arts centre, 2 Sillwood Terrace, Brighton BN1 2lR. Times 2.30-5pm
Plus an all day of practice on Sunday Nov 12th
Evenings with Nick 9 weeks from Sep 26th at 17 Tichborne St, Brighton BN1 1UR. Times 7.30-9.30pm plus an All Day of practice on Sunday the 19th November.
The first session of each course is an ‘orientation’ where you can attend without any commitment.
