Mindfulness Meditation provides an opportunity to truly experience the present moment for the duration of the meditation session, and has been shown to improve the health and wellbeing of people who meditate on a regular basis beyond the practice session.  Mindfulness principles can also be directly applied to the challenges of daily life. Living more mindfully, we are able to perceive and respond to our circumstances in ways that are more effective, productive, satisfying.

In this 4-session workshop, participants will have an opportunity to learn or enhance their practice of Mindfulness Meditation.  Additionally, through discussion, individual, and group exercises, as well as suggested “homework”, you will learn to apply mindfulness-based skills to the challenges of daily living, including coping with internal stressors like negative thoughts and emotions, as well as situational stressors, such as trying to balance work and family, challenging interpersonal relationships, and, generally, living in a complex and constantly changing world.
