Have you been hearing about mindfulness but you’re not quite sure what it is? Or perhaps you know a little and want to learn more – or are skeptical? The best way to explore is to experience it! This two-hour workshop is designed so that participants can partake in a range of small mindfulness practices. In addition you will learn the importance of the mind/body connection, the science behind mindfulness, some of the benefits and what it takes to develop a sustainable practice.
Mindfulness has to do with being fully present and aware of where we are and what we are contributing in a given moment. It sounds easy enough but in this fast paced, high tech world we are easily pulled in many directions and can lose focus, feel overwhelmed, endure stress and suffer seemingly unpredictable changes in mood. Cultivating awareness of thoughts, emotions and sensations can free us from automatic, habitual reactions that may lead us astray – and provide an opportunity to invite measured responses that more truly reflect our wishes, values and intentions.
I’m delighted to be bringing this workshop to Collingwood! Anyone curious about mindfulness should attend (there are no pre-requisites or expectations)! Comfortable clothing is recommended.
