As we find ourselves in the midst of a pandemic it is only natural to feel overwhelmed with emotions and thoughts.
We can all benefit from some emotional understanding and support and with this in mind Alice Wikström, Mindfulness and Compassion Teacher and Life Coach, has put together a special event for SwedCham members.
In this 2 hour face-to--face workshop we will learn about tools and resources to support our emotions in this time of great uncertainty, challenge and change. These tools and resources will also help us practice both Mindfulness and Compassion that we can easily bring into our daily lives.

This event is brought to you by SwedCham's Women4Women Forum.
Mindfulness is moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment, through the lens of compassion. Meaning that we pay attention to our thoughts and feelings without judging them - without believing, for instance, that there's a "right" or "wrong" way to think or feel in a given moment.
When we practice mindfulness we tune into what we're experiencing in the present moment, without revisiting the past or imagining the future. We become more present for this one and precious life.
