Mindfulness - 8 week course (Manchester Mind)

Research is showing that mindfulness meditation has a whole host of benefits for our minds and bodies. It can help calm the mind, improve sleep, and help us cope better with chronic pain and life’s challenges.

We all know what it’s like when stress sets in. Life seems harder, anxiety levels rise, and our sleep and social life starts to suffer.

Our 8-week course (2 hours a week) is led by Ruth, our qualified mindfulness practitioner. She aims to improve quality of life through the tools learned on the course.
