On Thursday, 1st May, was the second meet-up of the Mindfulness Interest Group.  It is a supportive and friendly group for those interested in mindfulness who are working for Hackney Council.  The aim of the group is to meet up monthly, at the Hackney Learning Trust, to share about mindfulness-related events and projects in the borough and to do some mindfulness practice together.

Most of the group are completely new to practising mindfulness.. and the advantage is that this encourages coming to mindfulness with a “beginner’s mind”, a combination of openness, curiosity and healthy scepticism.  To learn mindfulness, effort is needed.  Although the practice itself is simple, it takes effort and self-encouragement to persevere with it.  The Mindfulness Interest Group provides an opportunity to take a “breathing space” and practice tools needed to enhance well-being and resilience and reduce the effects of stress in the workplace.
