Are you stressed?

last modified Jun 14, 2016 10:51 AM

Rachael Harris will be running a mindfulness course in Clare College over the summer for students and post-docs. Mindfulness is about developing more awareness from moment to moment, and learning to relax more with whatever life throws at us. These skills help to enhance the quality of life as well as to cope with stress and other difficult states of mind.

For more information see Cambridge university Samatha Society and/or the Clare College Mindfulness page. For a podcast that gives the feel of what it’s about, click here.


The course will be on Tuesdays at 5.30pm on 21 & 28 June, 5 and 19 July, 2, 9 and 16 August. As well as these group sessions, which last about an hour and a quarter, there will be a one-to-one session with Rachael where you can discuss any issues you find helpful. If you’d like to come, please email Rachael at by 18 June, explaining why you’re interested and if you have any mental health issues you think she should know about.

People who come are asked to commit themselves to practising meditation for 10 minutes or more a day, as far as they are able, and to attending at least 5 of the 7 sessions.
