Course: Managing Chronic Pain with MindfulnessMar 02, 2023
A LIVE-Online course to deepen your insight into mindfulness practices informed by the complexities of chronic pain and trauma.
Many people are affected by chronic pain, with research showing that 1 in 5 people in the US, Canada and Europe, and up to 1 in 2 people in the UK have experienced moderate to severe pain in the last 6 months.
