Introductory Mindfulness Workshops

Introductory Mindfulness Workshops

Are you curious about mindfulness and interested in learning how to meditate? Discover why so many people are incorporating this simple, yet effective way to help quiet the mind, increase attention and awareness, and build resilience.
Introductory mindfulness workshops offer a “taste” of mindfulness meditation practices that allow us to see more clearly what’s going on in our lives and discover new ways of relating to challenges and stress.
Once you have been practicing for a period of time, it is almost inconceivable that you ever could have managed without it in your life—it is that powerful, and also that subtle, because at the same time it doesn’t seem like any kind of ‘big deal.’ Mindfulness is both nothing special and incredibly special, totally ordinary and completely extraordinary, all at the same time. - Jon Kabat-Zinn

Mindfulness meditation invites us to let go of judgment and unleash our natural curiosity about the workings of the mind while approaching whatever we are experiencing with kindness towards ourselves and others.

Mindfulness dates back to the time of the Buddha 2,600 years ago, but its also a universal practice that anyone can benefit from. Today, it has expanded beyond its historical roots and can be seen in many contexts. It is now broadly used in Western medicine and psychology to reduce stress and anxiety, lift mood, and promote overall health and well-being. Mindfulness is to the mind what physical exercise is to the body: a way to stay fit, flexible, and focused.

Introductory workshops are taught using a combination of experiential practice (guided meditation and reflections), conceptual teaching and inquiry (the opportunity to dialogue or questions).

The learning objectives for theme-based workshops (i.e., Mindful Eating, Stress & Resilience) are for participants to gain greater awareness of the session theme, how it shows up in their life and how to bring the skills mindfulness to support and relate more wisely to the particular theme or facet of life.
