The co-founder of a global Mindfulness movement will visit Hereford this Spring to help lead a masterclass in end-of-life compassion.

Vidyamala Burch, who helped establish Breathworks, will co-lead a day-long event at St Michael’s Hospice entitled Mindfulness & Compassion at the End of Life.

She will be joined by Gail Calthrop, the Hospice’s Breathworks Mindfulness Practitioner, for the masterclass which will benefit a wide range of people from NHS staff, carers and those facing end of life.

‘This masterclass will introduce you to the skills of sharing Mindfulness in a clinical setting, to help those facing pain and difficult emotions,’ said Gail.

It takes place on Friday 24th April from 9.30am to 4.30pm.
