Meditation and Mindfulness for Beginners

Mindfulness by definition is a state of complete awareness in the present moment, which allows participants to observe their thoughts and feelings without judgment, awakening fully to every experience.  But of much wider application is the wisdom of non-attachment which the mediation naturally evokes primarily through this experience of observation.  Classes will allow participants to develop mental clarity, self-discipline, enhanced creativity, internal peace and personal satisfaction.   


In this beginners class we will discuss common objections and benefits of meditation.  Mindfulness techniques will be discussed and practiced such as grounding, body scan, and mindful eating. 


We will also briefly discuss our 4 week series "Be Right Where You Are"

Our Storytelling Minds

Our mindfulness practice turns toward the fundamental matter of our storytelling minds. A mindfulness practice helps us to work with our thoughts in two very important ways. First, we become aware of the constant torrent of thoughts cascading through our minds. This is simply what our minds do and is neither good nor bad. But it is essential to be aware of these thoughts, as they are a driving force in our mood, behavior, and, ultimately, our life. Second, we learn to extricate ourselves from the stories we are constantly creating.

Love Yourself

We introduce loving-kindness as a concept and as a practice.

It not only matters that we pay attention but also how we do that. Attention some-times can have a cold or harsh quality to it. Loving-kindness starts with our intention to cultivate a more open and friendly stance toward ourselves and others. Ultimately, the difference between a joyful, happy life and misery has as much to do with the frame through which we see our experience as it does the events we experience.

It is developed through the formal practice of Loving-Kindness.

Mindfulness Based Stress - Reduction

Meditation is a practice by which a person achieves a greater sense of awareness, wisdom, introspection, and a deeper sense of relaxation.  Practiced for thousands of years, it is the discipline of concentrating on a single object, thought, sound, movement, or on attention itself.  Many people meditate to achieve a greater sense of spiritual awareness and understanding of their professed religion, but it can be practiced by anyone regardless of their religious beliefs and background. 


In this course, we will explore the various techniques of meditation and mindfulness for stress reduction.  Becoming aware of your thoughts, surroundings, sounds, smells, bodily movements, and especially your breath are fundamental techniques of meditation.  The basic objective is to be present – Just be here and living in our moment.
