Mindfulness drop-in: Third Thursday of the month

Event Series Event Series (See All)

18 January at 08:15 to 09:00

These free mindfulness sessions are led by experienced teachers, and offer an opportunity to refresh and sustain your practice. It’s also hugely beneficial to practice with others. Join us.

About the teacher

These sessions are led by David Ward. David has a keen interest in mindfulness and compassion-based approaches for supporting wellbeing, and draws on 30 years of practising mindfulness meditation.

Who are these for?

This drop-in is now open to:

  • All NHS staff across the UK whether or not you have any experience of mindfulness.
  • Staff of the Sussex Health and Care Partnership
  • Anyone who has done an eight-week mindfulness course with the Sussex Mindfulness Centre.
  • Service users of the Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust who have completed our eight-week Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy course.

Not for clinical or crisis care

We offer these drop-in sessions to support your mindfulness practice, to allow you an opportunity to try out mindfulness and build a sense of community.

During the session, please be prepared to have your camera on. If you feel distressed or unwell after a practice, please let the teacher leading the session know and, if appropriate, your GP or a clinician working with you.

It is not advisable to do these mindfulness practices in the heat of a crisis, when it would be important to access your GP or your designated mental health clinician.

Do contact smc@spft.nhs.uk if you have questions about the drop-ins but please be aware that we are not a clinical or crisis service, and it will not be possible to respond urgently or clinically to emails.
