In this pre-recorded session you will get the opportunity to practice mindfulness meditation; a well-evidenced practice for reducing stress, improving focus and enhancing resilience and well-being.

Each week we'll upload a recording of our weekly live sessions, giving you an opportunity to experience mindfulness in your own time - so please take the opportunity to enjoy. You can also join us live each week on a Wednesday - check out midday mindfulness session.

Weekly sessions will be facilitated by Michael Atkinson and Dr Jessi Komes.

Michael is from the School of Medical Education, whose current research is in mindfulness and resilience and the impact of mindfulness on our ability to make decisions. He has more than 20 years of experience in mindfulness, is a professional mindfulness teacher and regularly runs sessions across the University.

Jessi Komes is a lecturer in Psychology and a psychotherapist (i.TR.). She trained as a yoga and meditation teacher over a four year period (880hrs). She is trained in mindfulness-based and other approaches to help psychological stress management and increase wellbeing. Sometimes she likes to complement the mindfulness sessions with poetry or a quote to inspire the abstract mind and speak to the heart.

Please purchase a 'Free' ticket below, and you'll be sent the access codes for the recording, to complete in your own time. Full transcripts available on the recording, but please get in touch for any additonal needs.
