As part of Inside Arts, and under the umbrella of the national Being Human festival, core staff from the Life of Breath project offer an evening examining breathing and breathlessness.

The panel will include Professor Havi Carel (Department of Philosophy, Bristol), author of Illness; Professor Gene Feder (Primary Care, Bristol), a GP with a particular interest in respiratory conditions; and Dr. Alice Malpass (Social and Community Medicine, Bristol), who conducts research into mindfulness and CBT in respiratory patients with anxiety, and is a trained mindfullness-based cognitive therapy practitioner. The Life of Breath staff will be joined by Prof. Rupert Gethin, who has practised Buddhist mindfulness of breathing for thirty years; and Kate Binnie, a yoga practitioner, trained singer and music therapist, working with patients in palliative care. The evening will finish with Alice leading everyone in some mindfulness practice.

The event is free, but we recommend that you book a place in advance if possible.
