National Mindfulness Day for Christians
Founded by Christian Mindfulness and The Free Running Mind
The National Mindfulness Day for Christians is a one day conference exploring the areas of mindfulness, mental health and Christian spirituality. In particular the focus is to enable Christians to engage with mindfulness for health and mindfulness of God in an informed way. The keynote speakers are all experts in this field and will bring psychological, biblical and historical perspectives to the cultural phenomenon of mindfulness. The conference will be invaluable for both individuals and professionals.

“I thoroughly recommend to you this course on Christian Mindfulness, knowing the benefits of it personally. It will help you into practices that have been known in past centuries to be helpful to the Christian walk, but have been abandoned or have gone astray from Christian roots. It is in many ways a return to ancient wells where God’s people have always found life-
Rev Kenny Borthwick, Church of Scotland and Former Leader of CLAN (New Wine Scotland).
