An Experiential Introduction to Mindfulness

This webinar is an experiential introduction to the topic of mindfulness which includes an explanation of what mindfulness is and some of the benefits of practicing mindfulness.

Mindfulness is the awareness that emerges through paying attention on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally, to things as they are.  Mindfulness practice helps us to live more fully in the present moment. It helps us to see more clearly how our mind works.

Mindfulness helps us to relate to our thoughts and emotions in a new way which can lead to a life lived more fully in the present. We can learn through mindfulness ways of being more patient and kind with ourselves.

Regular mindfulness practice can reduce the impact of stress, reduce chronic pain, improve sleep, reduce blood pressure, improve physical health and control over negative emotions like anxiety and depression.

During the webinar attendees will have the opportunity to experience two mindfulness practices, the Body Scan and Mindful Movements 

Key topics covered:

  • Mindfulness: definition and benefits of practicing mindfulness.
  • Mindfulness Practice: An opportunity to practice mindfulness with a body scan and mindful movement.
  • Developing mindfulness practice: considering ways of being more mindful in everyday life.
