We invited Linda Gow, Christian and Clinical Psychologist to facilitate a retreat on Mindfulness and Christianity on 28th May. Her retreat has been postponed because of COVID 19 restrictions and we hope to offer it later in the year.
We asked Linda and Hilary to share their insights and reflections in a series of three conversations which they hope will give meaning, awareness and some practical ways to respond to the ongoing emotional impact on us of the Covid 19 pandemic – as people of faith or of no faith, and as those who care for and support others in a professional or personal capacity.
Conversation One: Fear and Anxiety.
