Mindfulness at Golygfa Gwydyr – Strategic Insight Programme
From June to September 2012, through funding from the Strategic Insight Programme (SIP), Sholto has been working with Golygfa Gwydyr through his role at Bangor University’s Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice (CMRP) to help integrate mindfulness into their community service provision. The initial stages involved running an eight week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course for staff members, volunteers and members of the community. Sholto has also been developing ways to deliver mindfulness in Golygfa Gwyder’s unique forest labyrinth and provided mindfulness tasters and introductions for other local service providers. The placement has just finished and the report will soon be available on the SIP website. Sholto is looking forward to continued involvement with Golygfa Gwydyr and running mindfulness events in their forest labyrinth with Wilderness Minds.
