In today’s fast-paced world with multitasking and around-the-clock networking it is easy to lose touch with ourselves and what matters most in our lives. Many of us long to experience calmness, less day-to-day stress, and rediscover what brings true meaning to us. Finding balance means not only how we manage our active lives but also how we cultivate an inner balance and peacefulness from within. Mindfulness and mediation have been popularized in the media and social media as ‘tools’ to achieve a more balanced, healthier, and happier life, and they have become an integral part of wellness offerings.
But what exactly is ‘mindfulness’ – what does it mean and how can practicing mindfulness and meditation help us live meaningful lives and experience an inner balance we crave? As importantly, is this right for me and can mindfulness practices and meditation fit into my already busy life? In this program, we will explore these and other questions to demystify some misconceptions around meditation. We will discuss and practice mindfulness approaches and, in a safe environment with like-minded peers, explore mindfulness meditation, and how to incorporate these practices into our day-to-day lives.
Join us if mindfulness has been on your mind: if you crave a more balanced life; if you considered or explored meditation before; if you have a regular meditation practice and enjoy guided meditations; or if you simply want to expand your understanding of these topics. No experience necessary!
We greatly appreciate that you register in advance (but walk-ins are welcome).
