MINDFUL MEDIC

Discover Your Best Self

 

OUR VISION

Mindful Medic was founded in 2017 by James Groves and Will Gao after they met as University College London Medical Students. Experiencing first-hand how Mindfulness has the potential to transform life as a medic for the better, we have developed a passion for training others to spend more time in the present moment. It is our ambition to teach Gold-Standard modern-day-relevant Mindfulness to the next generation of doctors, helping them to live more fully, care more compassionately and develop the tools they need to discover their best selves.

ABOUT MINDFULNESS

Learning to practice Mindfulness essentially trains us to spend more time in the present moment and understand what's actually going on in our minds. Those who develop this skill of present-moment living by practicing Mindfulness know first-hand that this training can make stress easier to handle and life a richer and more wonderful experience.

REDUCES STRESS

Fine-tune your physiology

Meditation is proven to lower sympathetic drive (the fight-or-flight response). This helps you to relax and cope better with stress, resulting in happier and healthier living.

RESHAPES THE BRAIN

Train your mind

Just as we train ourselves physically, we should train ourselves mentally. Research shows that meditation literally remodels your brain, enhancing memory, concentration and emotional intelligence.

OWN YOUR PRESENT

Live in the moment

It is so easy to get caught up planning for the future or find yourself regretting decisions made in the past. Sometimes, we need to remind ourselves to relax and enjoy the moment we are in.

 

BUILDS CONCENTRATION

It has been shown that just a few days of consistent Mindfulness practice causes a significant enhancement in attentional capacities.

 

THE MINDFUL MEDIC 30FOR30

The Mindfulness training course delivered by medics, for medics.

This 30-day journey gives medical students and doctors who are total "Mindfulness beginners" the opportunity to fully experience what Mindfulness is about and to experiment with the effects it can have on their mind and body. We have found that participants will leave the course with an newfound set of skills for living and the tools they need to discover their best selves.

 

WEEKLY WORKSHOPS

Our intimate group sessions delivered in Central London are the backbone of 30for30. Learn the basics, ask plenty of questions and discover the science behind Mindfulness whilst you share your experience of 30for30 with your fellow participants.
