Mindfulness , Capacitar Well-being and Yoga

The Chaplaincy offers a variety of wellbeing activities, which are all supported by substantial research studies indicating that they are likely to improve mental health and wellbeing, offering us peace and contentment. Our main activity in this area is mindfulness, led by Dr Kitty Wheater, Mindfulness Chaplain, and our Edinburgh University Mindfulness Initiative (EUMI) Team members.
The weekly MindLetter consists of an email, with a theme for reflection. It can be read by itself, and also includes a linked practice to explore in your own time
