Generously supported by Parkinson’s Care and Support UK, we are delighted to offer a regular programme of 8-weeks, 2 hours a week, research backed Mindfulness Courses delivered by Mindfulness and Breathworks Accredited Teacher, Katie Sheen.
The courses welcome anyone who would like to explore how mindfulness can help to manage life with Parkinson’s. This includes patients, carers and health professionals. Together we will explore how mindfulness can help fatigue, pain and support emotional and physical wellbeing, improving life today so that you can live better for longer.
Some of the things you will learn on the course include: Skills to ease the suffering associated with pain, fatigue and ill health, how to practice meditation, how to include mindfulness and self-compassion in your daily life, supportive mindful movement practices, the art of taking joy in simple pleasures and tips from modern Chronic Pain management techniques, including pacing and learning how to break the ‘boom and bust’ cycle.

Katie first discovered mindfulness in 2001 and has studied in a variety of Buddhist and Secular Mindfulness traditions, finding the teachings invaluable in helping her to handle both the large and small challenges of everyday life. Her career has included teaching nutrition in universities, colleges and at CPD events for health professionals, and working in both patient support and research management roles for national brain tumour charities.
