A Day of Mindfulness: Cultivating Nourishment of Being
Do you have trouble with:
- Handling stress?
- Being reactive?
- Living on auto-pilot?
- Being anxious?
If any of these conditions resonate with you, it’s time to consider mindfulness training. Mindfulness has been around for thousands of years, and is practiced by millions of people world-wide for good reason: it speaks to the issues above, and more. A Day of Mindfulness is an introduction to mindfulness as a way to increase one’s health and wellbeing. This day long program supports those new to mindfulness, facilitating the building of knowledge around the topic and cultivating both formal and informal evidence-based practices that are shown to support wellness. Participants will be guided through exercises and meditations, and shown how to integrate mindfulness practices into their daily lives. The day is divided into four sections:
1. Mindfulness and it’s Foundations
2. Cultivating Mindful Awareness
3. Cultivating Mindfulness in Being
4. Cultivating Mindfulness in Everyday Life
Each section contains: background information and instruction, experiential exercises, meditations, and inquiry. Throughout the day, we will highlight the foundational attitudes of mindfulness as participants increase their awareness and begin to notice the richness that the present moment has to offer. This program is derived from the seminal course of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), as well as other mindfulness-based initiatives (mindful self-compass and mindful eating).
- Date: Fall 2019
Includes: Healthy meals: breakfast, lunch and snacks, and mindful nourishment guidelines
Nourish your being and spend the day with us to build the foundation for living your best life NOW. Learn how to increase your present moment awareness and wellbeing at the same time!
