8-Part Mindfulness Series

A Simple Technique That Can Improve Your Health And Wellbeing

Facilitated By Lena Shore, MSc.

Mondays starting November 12, 2018 20:00 – 21:00

Mindfulness is the practice of being present. It is a simple idea but not so easy to achieve. The mind is constantly pulling us to be elsewhere, either remembering the past or ruminating about the future, thinking about another place where we would rather be, judging the person talking to us or thinking about what we will say when they finish. Rarely are we present with what is going on right now. So as we practice mindfulness and get better at being present, we start to notice things like the sound of the wind blowing through the trees, the beauty of a flower by the side of the road, or the sweet sound of a baby’s laughter. We start to listen to what other people are saying to us and really feeling with them. We start to appreciate what we have in our life right now without longing for a remembered past or fantasizing about a possible future. We become more creative in solving problems and find the humor in situations that don’t seem to have a solution. We become a calmer, more centered and happier person and life becomes an exciting adventure.

The eight-week course we are facilitating at The Place will give the beginning student of mindfulness the basic skills he/she needs to establish his/her own practice. We will explore the ability to be mindful of one’s body, of movement, of listening and seeing. We will learn to be present with our thoughts, our emotional states, and experience a skillful means of dealing with pain. Each student will be encouraged to practice at home in addition to the weekly class. Time is given at the beginning and end of each class for sharing and feedback about his/her progress in the practice.
