"If we are to prosper and flourish in this ever evolving environment, then it is vital that we make the most of all our resources - and this is true for our mental resources as well as material ones"
Professor John Beddington
Well-being is the combination of feeling good and functioning well. Well-being enables us to develop our full potential; work productively and creatively, build strong and positive relationships and contribute to society.
Mindfulness is a way of experiencing things 'as they are' in a non-judgemental way, allowing us to see what is happening more accurately and respond more effectively. More and more research shows that the practice of mindfulness can have a positive impact on people's sense of well-being.
This conference will look at ways in which mindfulness can enhance the well-being of all, from young children through to adulthood. It will address how the theory of mindfulness relates to well-being and give practical examples.
There will be opportunities throughout the day for meditation practice and discussion.
This conference is relevant to all, and all are welcome.
