Cultivating Mental and Emotional Resilience
Your leader cares for you and wants you to be well. If you are balanced and resilient then this benefits not only your daily life but also the lives of those around you: your family, your friends, but also your colleagues and even your patients. Research on the topic is supporting the benefits that practitioners have long felt and known.
To support your vitality and resilience, your organisation is offering you the opportunity to attend daily live online guided meditations to stimulate inner peace, resilience, self-compassion. These meditations take place 7 days a week from 7.45-8.15 PM (London Time) and are specially intended for people like you working in health and social care.
This offer is a gift from your organisation. The only thing you have to do is join via this page as a member. By filling in your organisations code nothing will be charged to you and you can start meditating today.
