Dr Paramabandhu Groves
Mindfulness: science and practice
Dr Groves is steeped in knowledge about mental health: He was a consultant psychiatrist working in the NHS in Camden and Islington and specialized in addiction.For the past 19 years, in addition to providing training in mindfulness within the NHS, he was also teaching meditation at the London Buddhist Centre. He is now a much sort-after speaker and trainer in Britain and beyond. All the research on mindfulness suggests that when practised consistently, these skills can be instrumental in facilitating continued alert minds in the retirement years. Margot Waddell spoke with us last year on the wisdom of remaining engaged in society as we grow older.Dr Grove’s seminar is about how we can resource ourselves to do this.
