Catch Your Breath is a new temporary exhibition exploring the Life of Breath research project, jointly led by Durham University and the University of Bristol. Bringing together medical history, philosophy, art, literature and music, the exhibition combines new artist commissions with objects from the Durham University collections and beyond to discover new ways of thinking about breath and breathlessness and their relationship to both illness and wellbeing.
The course is aimed at those who wish to use Mindfulness as a tool to support their personal health and wellbeing, as well as those who wish to learn new techniques to reduce stress and anxiety. Attending the entire course is required to gain the most benefit.
It is part of the event programme for Palace Green Library’s exhibition 'Catch Your Breath'. Fortnightly sessions 9am – 10am in the closed gallery to provide privacy.
