Wednesday, November 8, 15, and 29th from 7-8:30pm
You’ll head into this holiday with a different mindset feeling happier, healthier, and more purposeful.
First session: Mindful Being. Wednesday, Nov 8. 7-8:30pm.
We’ll learn more about mindfulness and how to integrate it into your life. Mindfulness is not a switch that turns on and stays on. We keep at it everyday, seeing each moment as an opportunity to let go and start fresh. With as little as a 10-minute daily practice, you’ll see how it can help you in feel greater alignment, connection, and fulfillment throughout your day and in all the areas of your life—health, relationships, work, parenting, financial, and emotional. We’ll become more aware and accepting of where we are now and use mindfulness to help get us to where we want to be. Everything you want for your life is possible – the transformation you are seeking is already within you. This course will help you bring it out. The most priceless investment is the investment in you.
Second Session: Mindful family harmony. Wednesday, Nov. 15. 7-8:30pm.
The start of the holidays also means the start of a lot of activity and family time, which may cause us stress. Join us as we learn mindfulness techniques that allow us to be more present and feel more abundance and joy. Mindfulness helps us recognize when we are lost in stories and voices in our head that aren’t serving us. We learn focus and attention skills that enable us to get present and be here now. Whether you are looking for greater connection with your children or extended family, mindfulness can help. Incorporating concepts from Dr. Shefali Tsabary The Awakened Family, we’ll learn how to tune into our inner self so we can respond to our outer experiences in a less reactive, more heart-felt way and enjoy greater connection in our relationships. Take this time for you so you can get the most out of the season ahead.
Third session: Mindful Self-Compassion. Wednesday, Nov. 30. 7-8:30pm.
With mindfulness, we become more aware and learn how to focus our attention on what we choose. We can choose to be more kind, loving, and compassionate to ourselves. With self-compassion, we are better placed to help others and feel happier. We only give to others what we give to ourselves. Incorporating concepts from Dr. Kristin Neff Self-Compassion: The Proven Power of Being Kind to Yourself, we’ll learn tools to accept ourselves as we are, become less reactive and more resilient with difficult emotions, and become more motivated to reach our highest potential. We’ll learn the science behind it and how to practice it in daily life to feel happier, healthier, and show up as the highest version of yourself.
Each session will include instruction, guided mindfulness meditation and visualization, discussion, and reflection time.
Consistency and accountability is important. Join like-minded people as we support one another on our path toward living with more presence, intention, purpose, and well-being.
