The purpose of the Mindfulness series is to give participants an opportunity to raise their awareness about their senses, thoughts and personal patterns. This series covers concepts and practices of Mindfulness Stress Reduction (MBSR), a method created by Jon Kabat-Zinn of the Center for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts. Participants will practice experiential inquiry which helps people see what is going on in their life. This practice supports well-being at a body and mind level as it connects people with their life inwardly and outwardly. Through the practice of mindfulness one cultivates clarity, insight, and understanding. This practice contributes to overall health and well-being and to a more positive work environment and service to others.
This 5-week series will introduce participants to mindfulness/meditation and the practice of using internal resources to cope with life's challenges and learn new habits in order to heal the self. Each session covers a new concept or theory and includes a short meditation experience followed by a group debrief.
Please bring a yoga mat and a bolster/cushion for meditation (or a firm pillow) if you wish to sit on the floor (recommended). As an alternative, you can choose to sit on a chair/sofa that will be available in the room. Please wear comfortable clothes if possible.
Reasonable accommodations, including Sign Language Interpreters, can be provided upon request with 3 days advance notice.
