ABC CATALYST SCREENING OF AN MBSR COURSE: Tuesday FEB 19
Have you ever wondered what an MBSR course is really liked? Contemplated booking in but not been certain about it?
ABC Catalyst have filmed an MBSR course. This screens next week on February 19. Our next course starts the week after. So watch and be inspired.
The course was filmed in late 2018. Fourteen people with diverse backgrounds and life experience bravely signed up to be filmed on their journey through the course. I met the Catalyst MBSR class in week 3 of their course when I filled in for their wonderful teacher Timothea Goddard and will be witting with them as they watch the screening.
