Local mindfulness teacher Jakki Pritchard runs 8 week Mindfulness courses in the Chapel. At times, we may feel overwhelmed by the sheer amount of “to-do’s”. Mindfulness can be life-changing by helping us not to feel overwhelmed by our never-ending “to-do” lists. To slow down when we’re stressed or anxious, be less hard on ourselves and to appreciate fully our own landscape, not just feel weighed down by the stress of all that needs to be done.

Mindfulness is proven to reduce stress by 40%, anxiety by 58% and depression or low mood by up to 50%. By changing how we relate to our feelings, we can feel calmer and wake up to life, not just exist. The courses use meditation to train our “awareness” of our thoughts, feelings and body sensations.
