Intro to Mindfulness

$35 per person

This workshop offers participants an introduction to Mindfulness that demonstrates how simple tools have the power to transform our lives by reducing stress and improving overall well-being.

We live in a time of unprecedented stress and anxiety. The demands of life, families, jobs relationships, are overwhelming. How can we deal with stress, negative thoughts, difficult emotional patterns in everyday life? How can we strengthen our ability to focus, to self-regulate and develop emotional balance while treating ourselves with self-compassion and others with kindness? One way is to learn Mindfulness practices and skills that are effective ways of quieting the mind, increasing awareness, building adaptability and resiliency. Through the practice of Mindfulness we become more responsive to life and less reactive by experiencing new ways to be present in your life. Mindfulness is about our well-being, and the well-being of those around us. It’s a way of understanding the causes of the happiness and the causes of stress and dissatisfaction. As we learn to pay attention to experience in a non-judgmental, open and curious way, we being to find ways of living that really work.

Come explore Mindfulness with us in this 1.5 hour workshop.
No experience necessary. Appropriate for beginners and those with Mindfulness experience.
