Fundraising Institute of New Zealand Southern: Learning Lunch

Mindfulness for Professionals: Keeping It Together with Wendy Andrews

Please join us for a great L@L event with Wendy Andrews. Wendy 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.

From developing a drop-in center for street workers to providing chaplaincy services in Christchurch Women’s Prison, she has seen it all. With a nursing background and a particular interest in community development, 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. Please join us 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 (or something similar?).

  • When: Thursday 30th November 2017, 12pm – 2pm
  • Where: NZ Post Training Room, 10 Sir William Pickering Drive (limited parking we suggest car-pooling)
  • Cost:$20 FINZ members, $30 Non-members  (NO DOOR SALES)

RSVP: by 5pm Tuesday 28th November
