Mindfulness is paying attention to what is happening in the present moment; in the mind, body and environment, with an attitude of curiosity and kindness. This moment-by-moment awareness allows us to choose what is helpful for us to focus on, experience or do, rather than living our lives on autopilot.
By engaging in mindfulness exercises on a regular basis we can train our minds to become really present, so we can respond wisely.
This session offers an overview of what mindfulness is and the benefits of practicing. Guided meditation practices are woven throughout the workshop to allow an opportunity to experience meditation and the associated benefits.
