Mindfulness is a practice through which we learn to observe and become curious about our everyday life. It’s a tendency to spend our time in our heads and not on the task at hand. We often perform the day to day activities in our life automatically without actually being present to our physical experience. By living this way, our life passes us by while we are caught up in the story in our heads. We miss the opportunity to truly taste the food we are eating, to see and experience that beautiful rose bush we walk past every day on our way into work, or to truly see the people that we interact with every single day. We are in such a rush to accomplish everything on our to do list that we miss those deep, beautiful moments that are available to us every day. Those moments are what give our everyday meaning.
This workshop is designed to give you the tools you need to add mindfulness to your life.
We will focus on learning:
- To become comfortable with stillness and silence – avoiding the tendency to turn to your phone every chance you get
- How to do a body scan – grounding yourself in your body and learning to listen to the subtler cues and messages your body gives to you
- To use your breath to access a calm, peaceful state of mind – helping you to speak, act and live from a more peaceful and centered in anxious moments
- To slow down and enjoy the food and beverages you are consuming – helping you to enjoy the food you are eating and gauge hunger and fullness more easily
Extend your Labour Day weekend!
