Introduction to Mindfulness Meditation
What Is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is a beautiful practice that helps in connecting and being rooted in life as it flows by. It involves getting our minds back to the present and paying attention to the life that is unfolding right now within us and around us.
How Will It Help?
Most of our emotional difficulties and our dissatisfactions arise from our own mind- a mind that attaches itself either to a past that has gone by or to an unknown future and does not permit us to experience the present, to LIVE. Learning mindfulness practices and incorporating them into your life will help you to discover how to live in the present in a more enjoyable way.
What will these sessions involve?
The group sessions will provide insight into the nature of dissatisfaction, emotional distress and pain and thereby create more awareness in dealing with it.
They will involve the teaching of simple mindfulness practices which you can make a part of your everyday routines, which will help you to start living your life with more ease and joy.
Mindfulness meditation will be the prime focus of the workshop.
