    Mindfulness and Art: The Liffey Swim

    Mindfulness and Art: The Liffey Swim is an opportunity to take 3 minutes out of your day to look closely and figuratively immerse yourself in Jack B. Yeats’ The Liffey Swim

    Immerse yourself in The Liffey Swim (1923), an atmospheric painting by one of Ireland's best-loved painters, Jack B. Yeats as you listen to a guided mindfulness, written and recorded by Mary Dowling.

    This guided mindfulness, like all mindfulness, gives us the opportunity to deliberately pause and pay attention to the present moment, without judgement. It gives us time to connect with ourselves and the world around us, fully experiencing what’s going on.

    Why not learn from this experience and start to practice mindfulness by spending time looking at any artwork, using it and it can be a very helpful tool to calm and settle a busy mind?
