The Scarlet Sage Herb Co.: Natural Awareness: A Mindfulness Workshop for Everyone
January 20 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Human beings have the ability to direct attention. With minimal effort, right now, you can place your attention on the toes of your left foot. You can feel the sensations in the back of your neck.
You can open awareness to the thoughts flickering through your mind. This natural ability, cultivated, is called mindfulness. When people cultivate mindfulness, good things happen. Calm develops. Rumination decreases. Stress responses ease. Working memory improves. Focus increases. Love grows. Relationships improve. And much more.
In this half-day workshop, participants will learn the basics of mindfulness meditation. During periods of guided practice and mindful group activities, we’ll build a foundation to help folks use these time-honored practices to improve the quality of their daily lives. Come join us!
In this mindfulness workshop participants will:
Learn essential mindfulness techniques and heart practices
Practice mindful sitting, walking, movement, listening, and speaking
Develop skills to reduce emotional reactivity
Reduce overwhelm and burnout
Discuss real-life examples to find real-life solutions
Be welcomed in a warm and inviting atmosphere
This workshop is open to people of all faiths, persuasions, races, ethnicities, nationalities, ages, resources, sexual orientations, gender orientations, and ranges of ability.
*Please bring your yoga mat and a meditation cushion if you have one.
