Stress and Mindfulness: An Introduction

Friday, Jun. 26, 2015

10:00 AM – 04:00 PM
US/Central

PSYCHOLOGY-AND-LIFE-240X240
Everyone wants to be accepted exactly as they are. Most of the time people want someone else’s acceptance, but the most important acceptance is their own.

Mindfulness practice can help people to wake up from the trance of unworthiness and claim their inner loveliness. Mindfulness fosters radical acceptance of things as they are, giving the opportunity to rest into unconditional friendliness toward one's self.

Research on mindfulness reports reduction in the immediate effects of stress and long-lasting, positive changes for practitioners. Those who practice mindfulness have also experienced significant decreases in anxiety, depression, and a variety of physical symptoms.

This workshop offers a day of instruction, practice, and discussion, in which participants will learn how to foster the practice of mindfulness meditation and the intentional focus on moment-to-moment experience.
