Part 6 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 skillfully work with thoughts and incessant thinking. Our minds run a mile a minute and we are mostly unaware of how we get hooked by unwholesome thoughts and take them to be true. Studies have shown that depression and anxiety often relate to the thoughts we believe and let spin out of control. Participants will learn how to strengthen beneficial thoughts and diminish harmful thoughts that create mental suffering. 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.
