Mindfulness is our basic ability to be fully and unconditionally present: to be aware of where we are and what we’re doing on a moment to moment basis without judgment. While mindfulness is a capacity we naturally possess, it becomes more readily available to us when practiced on a regular basis. Mindfulness gives practitioners the opportunity to become more present to reality just as it is—and the observations and insights that they gain from the practice allows them to discover how to alleviate and even eliminate the unnecessary suffering that comes from resisting things as they are.
The Mindfulness Meditation Introductory Workshop is a six-hour workshop designed to teach individuals how to use the time-tested practice of mindfulness meditation as a tool for meeting life’s challenges with power, purpose and peace of mind. Since the establishment of secular versions of the practice in the late 1970s, more than a thousand publications have documented the manifold physiological and psychological benefits of mindfulness meditation: from boosting immunity, increasing longevity and enhancing mental acuity to improving emotional resilience and fostering relational empathy.
By the end of the workshop, participants will have a basic grasp of what mindfulness is; the various ways with which it can be cultivated and trained; and the various means by which it can be applied in order to not just survive, but to actually thrive, in a challenging world. No previous meditation experience or particular meditation ability is required to participate in this introductory workshop.
