Mindfulness For Beginners
Four Sundays, Sept 13 – Oct 18
From 10-11 AM
Mindfulness is a clear clean mental space, where one is open, receptive, attentive and non-judgmental. This mental space can show up randomly or with particular circumstances. For example, when one is in nature, or focused with what one is doing. However, there is more to it. It’s about having a more spacious mind where one is aware of one’s own thoughts, feelings and physical sensations. During this awareness, then we get the chance to see clearly what is going on and what is the best response in the moment for the circumstance at hand.
The medical and many other fields use the practice of Mindfulness for stress reduction and reduction of many symptoms of illnesses and even for enhancing productivity. However, there may be too much expectation from the state of Mindfulness.
Mindfulness Is Not Enough.
During this course we learn various techniques and tools on how to be Mindful in the moment and what else is necessary to enhance and sustain one’s sense of ease peace.
Six one hour sessions. We will cover sitting, standing and walking meditations, Mindfulness of your body, eating, listening and more.
