EWP@UP workshop: Mindfulness for busy people


EWP@UP workshop: Mindfulness for busy people

1 June

When we are swamped with work and daily responsibilities it is sometimes very difficult to find our way back to feeling grounded and happy with where we are in our lives.   The focus of this workshop will be to explore what Mindfulness is, why it is important and look at simple practical steps to apply the principles to everyday life.

Join us at EWP@UP for a four-hour morning workshop to empower you to find a bit of calm in the chaos of everyday life. This workshop is intended for employees working at the Hatfield Campus and their registration will have preference. Please note this workshop will be presented at the other campuses during June as well.
