Mindfulness has become quite popular in recent years. It has been shown to positively influence the general health and wellbeing of those who practice mindfulness meditation. There is ample evidence too to suggest that a mindfulness practice contributes to more ethical decision-making. Through lecture, discussion and practice, this workshop will share the research on mindfulness and practical applications to foster better self-care in interpreters and more ethically-minded interpreting practice.
