Part 4 of the Mindfulness series
Mindfulness is the practice of being present to one’s experience with loving attention, which studies have shown helps reduce stress and promotes well‐being.
In this class students will learn to recognize emotions and how they impact our bodies and minds. Bringing mindfulness to emotions and naming them as they arise is a powerful tool for attending with kindness to our emotional world. Participants are taught how not to be mentally hijacked by challenging emotions, but rather work with them skillfully and lessen reactivity. Practiced over time, mindfulness of emotions leads to more harmonious relationships with loved ones and the world at large. A private and quiet space is recommended for participation in this class as well as a blanket or yoga mat, chair and loose‐ﬁtting clothes.
