#200 - Make the Most of Your LIM Experience with a Relaxed Mind through Meditation
We know how easy it can be to slip into autopilot when attending a conference – hustling in and out of sessions, responding to emails, tweets and phone calls, maximising every moment with your volunteering colleagues and hoping that the next break or meal is a tasty – and healthy – one! In the midst of all of this multitasking, we may find ourselves in mental and physical overload. We want to offer you a few minutes to clear and reboot your mind space. In this 30-minute session, have a seat, close your eyes, hit the pause button, take some deep breaths, and reconnect to your mindful state of being actively aware in each moment for you to make the most of your Leadership Institute Meeting experience.

Please note that this session is optional and seating is limited. Seating is on a first-come, first-serve basis and attendees will not be permitted to join the session late.
