SOUTH WEST WELLBEING NETWORK – Monday 28 September 2015 6-8pm
The Kenn Centre, Exeter Road, Kennford, Exeter, Devon, EX6 7UE

An Introduction to Mindfulness and Meditation for Wellbeing


6.00 – 6.30pm Pre-event registration, networking & refreshments
6.30 – 7.00pm Based on Mindfulness and also classical Psychosynthesis guided
meditation, this taster session is great for self-development. It is designed
to help you improve your wellbeing, centre yourself, calm your system,
settle your emotions, and also to engage in spiritual growth through
accessing your subconscious wisdom.

About the Speaker – Cathy Towers
My original training in psychosynthesis gave me a strong grounding in
guided meditation and mindfulness awareness. I taught at Birkbeck
College in London for several years. Somehow, as with most things which are good for us, I allowed this wonderful skill to drift with too many other things, which were fun to engage in. Then, supporting myself through a prolonged period of stress,
I got myself back into a daily mindfulness routine and daily journalling.  What a relief to be back on form again with confidence. It is a challenging practice initially but one which will serve us well lifelong with regular practice.

7:00 to 7.20pm Break and networking
7.20 to 7.50pm Mindfulness mediation part two – Psychosynthesis guided mediation
7.50pm Wrap-up & close

This event is free to CIPD and ISMA members and their guests. If you reserve a place and either do not attend or have not cancelled your place at least 48 hours before the event start time, you will be invoiced £10. This is due to the high number of no shows or very late cancellations received over the last year which
have led to excessive food waste and unnecessary cost incurred. Thank you for your understanding.
