What is the purpose of this group?

If you have attended a Compassionate Mindfulness Group you may find it difficult to continue practicing when the group has ended or you may wish to access a group once again to benefit from the experience of a shared practice.  This new monthly practice group is a response to the request by previous group attendees for a service providing such an opportunity. The group will be less structured than the initial training and will allow those attending to revise what they have learned on the initial course through further discussion and practice.

Who can attend?

You can attend if you have already completed a Compassionate Mindfulness Course (9 or 14 weeks) with Dr Joanne Milner, Clinical Psychologist at Tyneside Mind or WHIST.

 You may wish to bring a pen and paper to make notes and glasses if you need these to read. If you have any other specific requirements, please let us know in advance so that we can find ways to help you access support to attend.

We are hoping to make this group self-running in 2018 supported by staff from the Recovery College. It will therefore belong to those attending who can work with the Recovery College staff to develop a group which meets your further compassionate mindfulness practice needs.
