UKCISA Mindfulness seminar (UKCISA members only)

In light of the recent developments surrounding COVID-19, increased levels of remote working, and general uncertainty, it is now more important than ever to look after your mental health. That’s why we are launching regular mindfulness sessions for our members.

What is mindfulness and why practice it?

Mindfulness is the deliberate act of paying attention to the present moment. The aim in mindfulness practice is to adopt an open and non-judgmental attitude to whatever we become aware of. There are many benefits to be gained through a regular practice of mindfulness. It increases our sensitivity to our body, thoughts and emotions and can lessen the impact of negativity and stress in these areas as we develop an accepting, resilient and compassionate attitude towards ourselves and our circumstances.

About the session

Hosted by Alan Gelfer (City University) and Stephen Davies (Edge Hill University) this session will provide a very brief explanation of mindfulness and introduce a theme for the mindfulness practice for 5 to 10 minutes, then they will share a 15 minute commentary for you to follow, and finally there will be time to get your comments and feedback on the experience.
