Mindfulness is a big buzz word in the corporate world today, what with companies like Google introducing workers to new ways of reducing stress through meditation, yoga classes, and colouring-in books. But what is it really? And how does it work? Join us on Tuesday 27 September at 7pm for an insightful and practical look at mindfulness from the perspective of the brain: how it functions, how certain practices enhance the way your brain works, and how you can really benefit from mindfulness.
