Curious about mindfulness? Interested in learning how to meditate? Want to learn effective strategies for reducing stress?
This workshop is a three-hour introduction to a powerful mental health practice that can help you cultivate a clear mind and new ways of relating to life, stress and pain. Mindfulness–the practice of open and nonjudgmental awareness in the present moment–is to the mind what physical exercise is to the body: a way to stay fit, flexible and focused. Mindfulness is currently broadly used in Western medicine and psychology to reduce stress and anxiety, lift mood, and promote overall health and well-being.
Introduction to Mindfulness and Meditation is an opportunity for beginners to experience a taste of the peace and calm that meditation can create. You will have the chance to practice several guided meditations, get answers to your questions, and to know more about the benefits of mindfulness meditation. You will learn:
- How to meditate
- How to respond more effectively to stress
- How to connect to the present moment more effectively
- How to incorporate mindfulness into everyday activities
The scientific evidence backing the benefits of mindfulness meditation is well established. This introductory workshop is a great opportunity to experience what mindfulness is all about, and to begin enjoying its benefits!
