About Finsbury Park
Finsbury Park underwent a £5million Heritage Lottery Funded restoration and improvement programme in 2005. In recognition of the transformation, the Park was awarded the prestigious Green Flag Award in 2007 and has retained it ever since.

Mindfulness is a very simple form of meditation. A typical meditation consists of focusing your full attention on your breath as it flows in and out of your body. Focusing on each breath in this way allows you to observe your thoughts as they arise in your mind and, little by little, to let go of struggling with them.
