Donation Event: Exploring how Mindfulness can Support People Living with Parkinson’s Disease

When: 25 Jun 2024
Where: Online Event
Tutors: Rebecca Crane, Teresa Gane

About the event:


Join us for an event exploring how mindfulness can benefit people living with Parkinson’s Disease.  You will have an opportunity to hear from those living with Parkinson’s about how mindfulness has helped with emotional, physical, and psychological aspects of the condition, as well as those teaching the courses.


There will be ample opportunity for people to ask questions or offer reflections as well as a chance to practice a short meditation. All are welcome, with screens off or on as you prefer, and the event will be recorded if you are unable to attend.


The event will be facilitated by Rebecca Crane and Teresa Gane. Rebecca, who until recently was Director of the Centre for Mindfulness, Research and Practice (CMRP) at Bangor University, was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2020.  She will be speaking about how her practice has supported her personally as well as those in groups she has taught.


Teresa works for the Mindfulness Network as Supervision Coordinator and is also a freelance Mindfulness Trainer and will outline the impact of courses she has taught over the past six years.  You will also hear from at least one participant from these courses who share their experience and the reason they still practice!

This event is offered in collaboration with the Mindfulness Network Community Friends (MNCF) - an initiative to engage the wider mindfulness community and reach new audiences. Led by a Committee of Volunteers, supported by the Mindfulness Network, we work together to run a programme of donation-based events and inspiring content. You are welcome to visit the Community Friends area of our Community site, which is open to all, for more opportunities to practice and learn together.
The workshop will take place online using Zoom from 7 – 8.30 pm UK time
