Mindfulness is the art of practicing presence in our lives in a non judgmental way.
From this place of greater awareness we develop the ability to respond in skillful ways to the demands of life with less frustration and reactivity.
This 8 Week Course includes guided mindfulness practices, yoga asana, group dialogue, opportunities for
self inquiry, a CD and materials to support the practice, a one day silent retreat on the 6th week and
various ways to explore how mindfulness can enhance our lives overall.
This MBSR course will invite you to:
~ Pay attention to experiences with kindness and compassion
~ Learn to respond to undesirable circumstances with patience
~ Cultivate an awareness of the relationship between the mind and body
~ Promote a healing and empowering experience of your physical, emotional, and spiritual self
~ Practice living in the moments of your life rather than caught up in the worries of the future and thoughts of the past.
