Join us online for an 8-week journey towards a calmer mind. Taking place from January 28th to March 18th, learn how to practice mindfulness alongside clinical psychologists Dr Fionna Bathgate and Dr Jennifer Gardner.

To gain the most benefit, you will need to be able to attend most of the sessions and have the intention to complete daily meditation practice.
