Mindullness Professional Recognition

University of Aberdeen

Mindfulness is an innate capacity of the mind to be aware of the present moment in a non-judgemental way. It enables us to access inner resources for coping effectively with stress, difficulty and illness. This promotes a way of being that helps us to take better care of ourselves and lead healthier lives.

Mindfulness Professional Recognition is delivered in partnership with the Mindfulness in Schools Project, The Mindfulness Association and Youth Mindfulness. These partners will deliver mindfulness training before you undertake at 6 month practice and reflection project, assessed through reflective and academic writing.
