Self-Care: Mindfulness for Busy People (2 of 4)

  • Oscailt 8 Pembroke Road Dublin 4 Ireland

WEEK 2 of 4

Do you feel you have no time for yourself? Between the constant demands of parenting and the pace of daily life, it can feel like we are running through our life, consumed by responsibilities: caring for children, work, home or others. What about you? 
The practice of mindfulness – of living deeply in the present moment – can open up a sense of spaciousness in our lives, where every moment becomes our own. 
This course will develop our ability to be present for ourselves and to care for our body and mind in the present moment. Through learning to consciously befriend ourselves, we create a new habit of self-care, which can be with us in any environment.
