Episode #7 – Resilience & Mindfulness with Gill Hasson

Resilience & Mindfulness with Gill Hasson

Episode Highlights

Host Faith Hill talks with author, teacher and coach, Gill Hasson on the topic of mindfulness; a great practice for us all to nurture at any time, but particularly during these times of uncertainty and stress.  

We explore the difference between formal and informal mindfulness and also a variety of mindfulness concepts including acceptance, patience and ‘beginner’s mind.

Gill shares several very helpful mindfulness techniques to allow us stay in the moment and to stay grounded; plus, how we can each build resilience through cultivating certain personal traits.

She shares her love of walking (and how it changes our perspective), The Godfather book and comedy classics such as Billy Connolly and Gavin & Stacy. Her personal story of a train journey from London to Athens (via Belgium, Germany, Austria, Serbia, Bosnia and Italy) as a teenager is upliftingly lovely.

Duration: 47 minutes
