Mindful Sleep: Learning to get deep rest mindfully
A collaboration between Coaching Psychologist and Sleep Expert, Amy McClelland, Sleep Wales and Mindfulness trainer and Mindful Space founder, Vicki Worsley.
Learn new ways of getting deep rest and recuperation with the help of mindfulness and develop skills in handling sleeplessness. Mindfulness can take the anxiety out of sleep and can be a powerful vehicle enabling us to get the rest that we are so often deprived of in modern 24-hour society. This is an evidence-based approach.

In this workshop we will explore the relationship between mindfulness and sleep. It will include input, discussion and experiential mindfulness activities. You will also get the opportunity to develop your own sleep tool-kit.
A central part of the learning on this workshop will take place between students, in the group. For this learning to take place it is essential that the group environment is comfortable, friendly and supportive. We see it as a key part of our role to facilitate this environment.
We encourage you to wear loose, comfortable clothing.
If you’d like to do some reading on the topic we recommend Full Catastrophe Living, Jon Kabat Zinn and The Sleep Book by Guy Meadows.
