Are you feeling stressed? Overwhelmed? Does it feel like you’re always somewhere else, ruminating about the past or worrying about the future?
Mindfulness refers to a set of mental skills that we all possess; it involves our ability to concentrate on one thing for a sustained period of time, as well as our ability to take a non-evaluative and non-judgmental approach to our own thoughts. These skills can be further developed through various exercises, including mindfulness meditation. Learning to take a more mindful approach has been demonstrated to be helpful in managing stress, anxiety, depression, chronic pain, and some emotional difficulties.
Join us for a workshop to learn the basic principles of mindfulness and the techniques of mindfulness meditation.
