Mindful Practice and Living
The theory of mindfulness is presented through experiential exercises. Each week we will spend time exploring a mindfulness practice, discuss our experience of the practice, and look at how we can incorporate these practices into daily life, both at home and at work.
Week 1: Begin at the beginning
Introduce the basic concepts of mindfulness through experiential exercises and discussion.
Week 2: A mind full of thoughts
Explore strategies to develop awareness of thoughts and how they impact our contact with the present moment.
Week 3: Getting off the emotional roller coaster
Explore strategies to develop awareness of feelings and how we distance ourselves from them in the present moment.
Week 4: Giving myself a break
Learn about why self-compassion is good for emotional and physical health, and look at how it relates to mindfulness.
Week 5: Meeting the present moment head on
Having explored mindfulness for a couple of weeks we will revisit the present moment, and examine how contact with the present moment impacts our perception of our experiences.
Week 6: Giving other people a break
Learn about how having compassion for others is good for emotional and physical health, and learn how we can use a mindfulness practice to help develop our compassion.
