Programme Synopsis
[BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND] Does your mind wander when you read, making concentration on reading difficult? This workshop aims to bring a richer experience of reading books through the use of mindfulness practices. The background to mindfulness practices and its application to reading will be explored. There will be a short practice of mindful reading followed by an opportunity to share our experiences.

Attend this workshop to ace the techniques to read with greater clarity, better concentration, and understanding. 
Bring a book, come join us and savour the reading experience!
