Thursday 8PM GMT: Mindfulness session on Zoom
Friday 6PM GMT: Stay Safe Stay Connected call-in on Zoom
Many thanks to everyone who joined us on our first COVID-19 conference call last Friday. Twenty-five people from all around the world joined us to discuss the specific needs of the blind and VI community during the pandemic. We'll run another call this Friday at 6PM London time.
As a result of the first call, we're delighted to announce that we're now in a position to offer a free online group focussing on fostering resilience and responding mindfully to the Coronavirus outbreak.
Laurent, a registered counselling psychologist, will be running the sessions every Thursday at 8PM UK time. The first session will take place this Thursday, the 26th of March.
The sessions are free to join, will last around an hour, and are run in the same Zoom meeting room as the Braillists conference calls. The course will focus on strategies to deal effectively with anxieties and difficulties you might be feeling during the COVID-19 pandemic.
You can join the course from either your computer or smart device (recommended) or by telephone.
