Mastering Mindfulness

View Class Description
  • Do you have stress in your life and would like to learn a skill that can be used lifelong to reduce it?
  • Are you curious about where your stress and patterns of stress come from?
  • Do you find harder and harder to focus due to the increasing every day distractions?
  • Do you find it difficult to concentrate and focus, or remember things?
  • Is your mind is FULL, and you find that it impedes your ability to present?
 

Mindfulness is paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, without judgment; in other words being self-aware. It sounds simple, but our brains resist it. Self-awareness scientists say is very healthy, but rarely achieved in today’s busy world full of digital distractions.  

  • Mindfulness reduces your stress and can be used lifelong.
  • Mindfulness builds awareness of where your stress comes from and how to recognize your patterns of stress.
  • Mindfulness increases focus and reduces everyday distractions.
  • Mindfulness replaces a “mindFULL” and “mindfulness” experience with focused presence of mind

Mindfulness has been reported to produce positive effects on physical and psychological well-being that extend into daily life.

 

Mindfulness is mental state achieved by focusing one's awareness on the present moment and calmly acknowledging and accepting thoughts, feelings, and bodily sensations. It is simple to learn and is effective in enhancing well-being.

If greater well-being isn’t enough of an incentive, scientists have discovered the benefits of mindfulness techniques help improve both physical and mental health.

Evidence suggests that mindfulness can aid with:

  • Reducing negative thoughts and rumination
  • Reducing stress and anxiety
  • Boosting your working memory
  • Reducing emotional reactivity
  • Increasing your ability to focus
  • Enhancing your cognitive flexibility
  • Increasing immune functioning
  • Lowing depression risk among pregnant women and teens
  • Improving sleep
  • Lowering blood pressure
  • Alleviating gastrointestinal difficulties like IBS

Each class will include a mindfulness experience as well as time for questions and answers. Dress comfortably.

6 week series (class sessions 60 min. ea.) 
Classes are offered Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer.

Meditation

View Class Description

  • Do you find it difficult to relax and just enjoy life?
  • Is it difficult to fall asleep and/or stay asleep?
  • Does it feel like your brain is just fried?
  • Do you have high blood pressure?
  • Are you just plain stressed?

Meditation is an ancient technique and an effective means of stress management. The latest research in neuroscience has shown that our brains can be significantly affected by meditation, especially in the areas of emotional integration, self-awareness and compassion for ourselves and others.

In meditation, the mind is clear, relaxed, and inwardly focused. The goal of meditation is to go beyond the mind and experience our essential nature—which is described as peace, happiness, and bliss. Meditation is a practical means for calming yourself, experiencing quiet, stillness, and solitude.

Unlike many medications for stress, there are no reported side effects from meditation except for positive benefits.

Meditation techniques have been practiced for millennia by many traditions all over the world. And once learned are free.

  • Meditation aids relaxation.
  • It help relieve insomnia and allows you to sleep better
  • It gives the brain a rest.
  • It helps lower blood pressure (more effective than medication for some patients)
  • It eliminates stress

"100 Benefits of Meditation "

The latest research in neuroscience has also shown meditation to enhance your brain's neuroplasticity (its ability to change) and increases gray matter. Neuroscientists have studied the brain waves of meditators and show why they're healthier.

In this class we will explore very simple meditation techniques that can be incorporated into your lifestyle.

Each class will include a meditation experience as well as time for questions and answers. Dress comfortably.
