Mindfulness Special Event

Action for Happiness are hosting a special event on 9 December with author and mindfulness expert Jon Kabat-Zinn about how to overcome stress in difficult times. It's online via Zoom at 7pm GMT (donations optional) and open to all.

Life often feels out of control. How can we respond wisely and discover more peace, even in really stressful situations? At this special event, the 'father of modern mindfulness', Jon Kabat-Zinn will explore the impact of stress and how we can learn to respond mindfully to difficult situations.

By cultivating our awareness of life as it unfolds, moment by moment, we can change our relationship to pain, dramatically reduce our suffering, and deepen our sense of connection with ourselves and each other.

Jon will also reflect on the challenges facing our world and how cultivating mindfulness can help us cope better, enhance our relationships and contribute to a more compassionate, tolerant and warm-hearted society.
