Mindfulness is the practice of intentionally bringing attention to the present moment with acceptance. The use of mindfulness-based techniques is linked to reductions in anxiety, physical symptoms of pain, and depression. It has also been shown to enhance relationships and to reduce distress.
These workshops offer various ways of practicing mindfulness with optional opportunities to discuss the practices offered, the process and benefits of developing a consistent mindfulness practice, and other ways to bring mindfulness into daily life.
These workshops are designed to be helpful for long-time meditators and for those who have never practiced mindfulness prior to attending. Participation is free and we encourage you to attend as many as you wish.Click here to join the Zoom meeting
If you’re already familiar with mindfulness and would like to engage in regular practice, this workshop is for you.
The advanced mindfulness/meditation workshop provides an opportunity for people to practice meditating together and to discuss their experiences of independent meditation practice with each other. This can be very helpful when we are trying to maximize the benefits of meditation by developing it into a regular habit.
Typically, we will begin with a warm-up exercise, then open some time for people to share their questions, concerns, and/or insights related to practice. Finally, we conclude with a sitting meditation that typically lasts about 20 minutes. While the advanced mindfulness workshop has been primarily aimed at supporting practice for people who have already had some experience with meditation, beginners are also welcome to join.
