Mindfulness means maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of your thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations and surrounding environment, through a gentle, nurturing lens. It also involves acceptance, meaning that you pay attention to your thoughts and feelings without judging them — without believing, for instance, that there’s a right or wrong way to think or feel in a given moment.
When you practice mindfulness, your thoughts tune into what they’re sensing in the present moment rather than rehashing the past or imagining the future.
This workshop is for anybody who is curious about what mindfulness meditation is, and why so many people are benefiting from it today. Theory on the practice based on scientific evidence will be presented, as well as a short guided breathing meditation. The main goal of this session is for you to feel like you've acquired an accurate understanding of mindfulness is, and would be better able to make an informed decision about whether you would like to pursue your own practice in the future.
