The theme is Kindness.
In our unique circumstances amidst our ‘new normal’ – Join us for the next four weeks, for our free 30 minutes weekly sessions, which are open to everyone. Further sessions will be available.*
The CamAWISE Mindfulness sessions are an opportunity for you to clear the mental clutter and cultivate a more inner calm. Pay deliberate attention to help build your capacity to notice, and respond to information, situations and emotions, without getting overwhelmed or lost.
The sessions will be provided by Kalai Vanii Jayaseelan (Director, Sukhaatma), who is a Mindfulness & Emotional Intelligence Coach. She is a certified Search Inside Yourself Teacher of evidence-based Mindfulness and Leadership training originally developed at Google.
Research has shown mindfulness is effective in reducing stress and anxiety. Overall, practice leads to decreased psychological markers of stress in a range of populations. The 2017 comprehensive study at the University of Cambridge evidenced Mindfulness lowered distress for students.
All are welcome, and no prior experience is required – just a bit of curiosity and an attitude of openness.
