Introduction to Mindfulness Meditation

January 20, 2017, 10:45am

Mindfulness is the moment-by-moment process of actively and openly observing one's physical, mental and emotional experiences. Since most of our stress comes from worrying about the past or the future, focusing on the present gives our mind a chance to rest. In addition, mindfulness meditation practices have scientific support as a means to reduce stress, improve attention, boost the immune system, reduce emotional reactivity, increase compassion, and promote a general sense of health and well-being. In this course, you will learn mindfulness practices including sitting, walking meditations, yoga, and how to work with difficult thoughts and emotions. You will learn how to incorporate mindful awareness in to your daily life, reducing stress and developing greater mind-body awareness.The concepts you will learn include:• Overview of mindfulness• Mindfulness of the body• Obstacles to Mindfulness• Mindfulness of Emotions• Cultivating Positive Emotions• Working with difficult thoughts• Mindfulness of the Heart & Mind• Mindfulness to help with physical pain We allocate about 75 minutes per class and is a combination of lecture, practice, and group feedback/discussion. $150 for 6 weeks.
