Guided Mindfulness Practice (week three)

Online event
Wednesday, 26 May 2021
8:30 am – 8:45 am
  • Wellbeing programme

Join us for the next in a series of weekly 15 minute live Guided Mindfulness Practices.

Mindfulness is a type of meditation in which you focus on the present moment, with complete acceptance and non-judgement. Practicing Mindfulness involves breathing methods, guided imagery, and other practices to relax the body and mind and help reduce stress.

Priya Pandya ACII (Group Head of Insurance and UK Wellbeing Lead, Entain Group) will guide members through a weekly practice, varying from Body Scans to Mindfulness of Breathing and Mindful stretching.

Each session will be suitable for everyone and an uplifting way to start your day by bringing clarity to your mind. No equipment is required, just a quiet place to sit or stand where (ideally!) you won’t be interrupted.

Please note: you will need to book each session individually. All sessions can be found here, or a link to the next session will be included on your booking confirmation email.

Due to the interactivity of the event, places are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Barking Foodbank was set up by the Hope Family Trust and The Trussell Trust in February 2012 to help tackle hunger in the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham.

  • Between 1 April 2019 and 31 March 2020, foodbanks in the Trussell Trust network distributed 1.9 million emergency food supplies to people in crisis, an 18% increase on the previous year
  • More than 700,000 of those supplies went to children
  • During the first two months of lockdown, Barking Foodbank provided more than 8,300 meals to people in need
