The Wellness through Mindfulness Course approaches mindfulness as the life skill that it truly is. It can serve as an introduction to mindfulness for beginners or as a refresher for students of mindfulness and seasoned practitioners familiar with the foundational principles of mindfulness.
Using mindfulness practices as the entry point, over the next eight weeks, we will focus on strengthening your ability to concentrate and systematically expand your focus of attention. You’ll learn about the physiological and psychological bases of stress reactivity while experiencing mindful meditations for responding in positive, proactive ways to stressful situations.
Through your own experience you’ll begin to explore what it means to be fully engaged in the present moment via ordinary things, like the body, the breath, sounds and sensations. You’ll be introduced to mindful eating and mindful breathing. And in this first session, you will become familiar with the working of autopilot and how to identify it in your life.
