A workshop aimed at cultivating mindful compassion and resilience will be held on Saturday and Sunday October 13 and 14 at Temple Byron, 46 Melaleuca Drive, Byron Bay.

It will be led by meditation teacher and clinical psychologist Malcolm Huxter, who says, ‘Mindfulness is considered as a meditation practice, a way of being, a cognitive style, a mental skill, a core therapeutic process and a coping skill’.

‘Mindfulness has become a powerful psychological strategy for an array of mental health presentations as well as a practice to increase psychological wellbeing and enhance effectiveness in areas that include parenting, education, relationships, the workplace and more.’

Both days start at 9.30am.

Sliding scale price: from $60 to $450 for two days based on an honesty system of self-assessment of income and affordability (suggestions provided on booking).
