  • Dear Angela,

    I am a new member of the RSA, part of the South West Branch. I am sorry to see that I missed your webinar on ‘Sewing the seeds of Compassion and Well Being’. Is this still available to view? Has there been any action arising from this?

    I am asking as one of my specialist areas of interest and experience is in Cultivating compassionate and wise leadership. I have been involved with Professor Paul Gilbert’s work since the beginning and set up compassionate reflective practice groups on a mental health Trust acute unit some years ago. I have also published in the area. My most recent chapter with Professor Steve Murgatroyd on ‘ Compassionate Cities’ is due out in a forthcoming book in August. I am also involved with the ‘Compassion in Politics’ group. I would love to link with the work you are doing. My contact details are

    Many thanks. I look forward to hearing from you,

    Best regards,


  • Hello Angela - I wish I 'd seen this earlier - I would love to be involved n the Leeds festival - I run Oakdale Centre Mindful Teaching and I am based in Leeds. We work to bring mindfulness into all levels of school life. I will also be at the MoMM festival on Saturday - teaching mindfulness for children at 11am and then playing music at the closing event at 3.30pm - please come and say hello if you spot me and I will look for you too. If we miss each other my contact is 07804424812 or
