Can we be mindful in difficult moments? It brings great pleasure to be present for happy moments. But difficult moments challenge us. We wrestle with difficult emotions by pushing them away, denying them, or judging them. All the while, this struggle actually makes the process of working them even more difficult.
Join us in this exploration of mindfulness and how it can help us experience, learn from, and transform emotions with grace, acceptance, and resourcefulness. Mindfulness, the intentional cultivation of non-judgmental, present-moment awareness, can help us awaken to our emotions more fully, and allow them to be present and to move through us with less struggle.
The training helps people gain self-awareness, access and process emotion, reduce reactivity to thought and urges, and access internal compassion and intuition. 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.
