11 am Arrival and networking over coffee

11.30 am - 1 pm Mindfulness Discovery session with Steve Carter (details below)

1 pm - 2 pm Buffet lunch and networking


Mindfulness has been proven to reduce stress, providing a different way to relate to your experience. By nature, we tend to take on too much, overthink and analyse everything. We spend a lot of our time reflecting on the past or planning for the future. By doing this we put ourselves under an immense amount of pressure, ever-striving for the perfect life and the perfect circumstances that will make us happy.

Our speaker Steve Carter believes we're all complete and whole, just as we are. There is so much content out there telling us that we need to change, become better, improve ourselves. This content plays on our habitual self-criticism and we start believing it.

During this session, we will explore our attitude towards ourselves and discover the difference between nurturing and improving. We will also learn about the stress response, how it can manifest in our experience, and how we can manage our stress levels more effectively.  By cultivating self-awareness and acceptance we can build our emotional resilience, notice our habitual reactions and find the space to choose a different response. The session will also include an opportunity to experience some mindfulness meditations.

As a result of attending, you will:

  • Learn about the benefits of using mindfulfness techniques
  • Have an opportunity to experience mindfulness first hand
  • Understand how you can continue to explore mindfulness
