Mindfulness is used in a wide range of human activity: healthcare, sports, meditation, education and in daily life.“People who bring mindfulness into their daily lives find they are less likely to be swept away by anxiety, anger or unhelpful memories. They learn to be calmly aware in the middle of a busy day.“I have taught mindfulness practices to accountants, doctors, unemployed people, counsellors, community workers, managers, trade unionists and many, many others.” The mindfulness day will be held in the Mount Errigal Hotel from 10am to 3.30pm on the 25th. The cost of attending is €50. No previous experience of mindfulness is necessary and people who already practice mindfulness will also enjoy the day. Participants will be given a CD of mindfulness practices.Advance booking is essential and can be made through“My aim is that people should be practicing mindfulness in their daily lives from the moment they leave the hotel,” Padraig O’Morain says. “The atmosphere of the day will be light and pleasant.”Padraig O’Morain also writes a weekly column, That’s Men, in The Irish Times health supplement.AUTHOR TO BRING MINDFULNESS TECHNIQUES TO DONEGAL was last modified: May 6th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:mindfulnessPadraig O’Morainlast_img
