Pain Service MBSR practices

exp date isn't null, but text field is

We have recently started running 8-week MBSR groups again at the NHS GG&C Pain Service, albeit as online groups, using the Teams platform. This has presented some challenges, but also some opportunities to do things differently.  For a trial period we will upload live recordings of the guided practices that we introduce each week, so that participants (and anyone else using this app) can make use of these recordings for their personal practice in between the group sessions.

The recordings are presented as is, recorded via a laptop's microphone and speaker, with the odd phone alert and other background noises occasionally intruding in the background.....but we hope you find something here that might be useful for your personal practice.

We will add new practices each week, so please come back regularly and see what's new.
