Where Zoom (follow the link below to register)

As part of our introductory series, we will be hosting an introductory workshop on mindfulness ahead of our new Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) courses starting in March 2021.

This introductory workshop will give you an overview of what mindfulness is, the benefits of mindfulness particularly for those with multiple sclerosis (MS), the evidence behind its use, and how mindfulness can be used to manage stress, anxiety and symptoms of MS.

Our mindfulness practitioner, Phil Startin, will provide information on our specially designed mindfulness courses for those with MS, along with guiding a short practice together. He will signpost useful resources guiding you where to go next, including letting you know more about our full MBSR nine-week course and our shorter four-week courses.

The introductory session will last for around 40 minutes and allow for questions at the end.

If you would like to take part in the session, please click on the Event Bright calendar below to register via the Eventbrite website. The session has a suggested donation of £5, but you can donate anywhere from £1 to take part.

If you would like to know more about the session or need help registering, please email register@ms-uk.org.

 

Please see the feedback below from the participants of our previous courses

“The theory and exercises now form part of my plans for the day and help me to spend time just for me. I can justify being kind to myself as a valuable way of dealing with my MS.”

“Noticing tension in the body, learning to slow down in situations that normally cause me to rush and make mistakes”

“I feel have a way to take back control, to both focus and find peace”.
