Mindfulness for Professionals: Keeping It Together with Wendy Andrews

Wednesday, November 15, 2017   Posted in: Training By: Administrator With tags: seminar, development, mental wellbeing, mindfulness

Fundraising Institute of New Zealand (FINZ) Southern Division.Join the Fundraising Institute of New Zealand (FINZ) Southern Division for a great L@L event. Wendy Andrews is a Major with The Salvation Army and has over 23 years’ experience over a variety of roles including Minister, managing the Street Outreach Programme, Director of the Bridge Programme and currently the Assistant Personnel Secretary for The Southern Division.

Wendy has seen it all - from developing a drop-in center for street workers to providing chaplaincy services in Christchurch Women’s Prison. She has a nursing background and a particular interest in community development, so Wendy understands mindfulness and the need for self-care and balance within a professional and busy role as well as a busy life in general.

Mindfulness essentially means paying attention to what is currently happening while being kind and curious. Come along to hear Wendy’s practical tips on what we can do to be more mindful during our busy lives and therefore feel less stressed, anxious and depressed and more balanced. This will help to broaden our perspective and create more of an openness for learning and growing, and coping with the pre-Christmas madness.

Date and Time: Thursday 30th November 2017, from noon to 2pm.
Location: NZ Post Training Room (10 Sir William Pickering Drive). Please note there is limited parking so car-pooling is suggested.
Cost: $20 for FINZ members, and $30 for non-members. No door sales.

Register online now to attend this Mindfulness for Professionals seminar (Eventbrite). You need to register by 5pm on Tuesday 28th November.

The FINZ Southern Division hope you will join them for this fantastic professional development and networking opportunity.
