    Hi Miranda,

    Thanks, I always enjoy all of the Healthy UBC newsletter and have participated in some of the programs. I’m quite interested in mindfulness training and would love to attend the sessions but there is no way I can take 2 hours out of the workday to go. Are there any plans to have a lunchtime program (12-1 pm) sometime like your other programs?

      Hi Jenny,

      Thank you so much for your kind words about our newsletter and programming. At the moment, we do not have any mindfulness trainings planned that are one hour in length but we do realize that this is a challenge for people.
      We will be bringing back our summer ‘Learn to Meditate Series’ in August which will offer sessions that are one hour in length (over lunch hour) so please look out for that.
      We will definitely take your comments under advisement when looking at our future programming and how to make it as accessible for all as possible.
      If you have any further questions or comments, please feel free to email me at miranda.massie@ubc.ca.

      All the best
