Introduction to Mindfulness Meditation
Date: Saturday, October 21, 2017
Time: 09:15 am – 12:30 pm
Cost: $150 +HST
Mindfulness is the simple practice of bringing more awareness to the present moment. Mindfulness can help us step out of the automatic pilot and learn to fully engage with what is unfolding in the moment, rather than be lost in thoughts that are limiting at best and catastrophic at their worst as indicated by Mark Twain’s quote “I’ve lived through some terrible things in my life, some of which actually happened.”
Research indicates that the practice of mindfulness can benefit physical and psychological well-being and has been applied successfully to the treatment of anxiety, depression and ADHD, and for chronic pain, menopause and stress management. In addition this practice has been shown to benefit parents, teachers, athletes, and politicians.
In this half-day workshop you will:
- Learn what is mindfulness and why it has become so popular to promote physical and mental health;
- Clarify misconceptions about what this practice entails;
- Learn to connect with the part of you that can help you change your automatic reactions (habits) into more skillful ways of responding to difficult situations and stress (life challenges/stressors/worries/anxiety); and
- Learn and practice both formal and informal mindfulness.
The workshop consists of psycho-education, variety of mindfulness practice and group discussions. This workshop is recommended for people who are interested in learning more about mindfulness or are ready to incorporate some practices into their daily life.
