In March 2011, monks and nuns from the Plum Village Meditation Centre will be visiting UK universities to offer introductory workshops on mindfulness. These workshops will offer practical exercises in mindfulness of breath, body and mind, and share ways to cope with stress, release tension and handle strong emotions, including anger, loneliness and despair. They will share their experiences of using simple practices to awaken to joy and happiness in daily life and nourish a heart of compassion.
