Donation-based monthly workshops hosted by Fiona McKechnie and supported by the Mindfulness Network Community Friends, held on Tuesday evenings. These workshops will be an opportunity to explore mindfulness and how it can support managing a fatiguing health condition.

Tuesday, March 12th, 2024: Overview of fatigue and a mindfulness-based approach. Where can we begin?

Tuesday, April 9th, 2024: Sleep and rest for the tired yet wired.

Tuesday, May 14th, 2024: Managing the boom and bust through mindful activity management. “How can I take care of myself?”

Each session will include:

– Current thinking on post-viral and persistent fatigue and the basis of a mindfulness-based approach. This will be presented in an accessible way and while not a comprehensive review of the research, is informed by current research and best practice.
– A 20-minute practice and short practices.
– Breakout rooms to discuss with others.
– Time for questions but please note very personal or complex queries will not be able to be addressed in this forum.
– There will be a 10-minute break halfway through the 90-minute session, and other fatigue management principles will be practiced throughout.
– Part of each session will be recorded and will be available on the tiles at the bottom of this page.
