Go on a journey through Sydney Gardens in Bath, learning about and practicing Mindfulness, using this 40 minute audio guide created by Huw Griffths from Mindfulness Bath. Pick up your smart phone and a pair of headphones. Make sure you take things you might need - perhaps some water, a hat if it's hot, a thick coat if it's cold, and something to sit on. As the Mindfulness Walk takes place in a public park, please remain aware of your surroundings and environment throughout the session - this is all part of being mindful!
