Mindfulness is the moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings and surroundings with our hearts full of kindness, acceptance and non-judgement. This practice can give us an alert, calm, and gentle way of being with ourselves and others throughout each day. Instead of dwelling on the past or worrying about the future, we can learn to be present in the moment and reduce the stress we experience. We build this capability through practice of meditation and yoga. In each class we will study the work of Thich Nhat Hanh, Jon Kabat-Zinn and others. We will practice meditation, standing and sitting yoga, and loving-kindness to develop and enhance our mindful state. Participants will be expected to practice meditation and yoga in between class sessions and discuss their experiences during class.
Note: This course requires active participation; please enroll only if you are able to participate fully: no special equipment is needed.
