What Can Mindfulness Do For You?
Mindfulness Keynotes/Workshops Available!
Many people think they are “bad” at meditation. Most often, that is because they do not understand the process. Mindfulness simply means focusing on the present moment, and being aware of your thoughts as they come and go. That’s the basic idea. This session will go over the many benefits of Mindfulness practices, and offer a few guided practices to get a taste of what Mindfulness can do for you. By the end of the session, you will have a better understanding of this ancient practice, and leave with some skills and strategies for incorporating these practices into your life in just a few minutes a day! It is likely you will also leave feeling less stressed and more peaceful!
Once you have had the opportunity to practice Mindfulness on a fairly consistent basis (even 5 minutes per day!), you can learn to make use of more advanced practices. Mindfulness is an effective tool to discover and challenge limiting beliefs that hold us back from leading our lives with meaning and purpose. This session offers the opportunity to delve deeper to illuminate and let go of what stops you from living your best life. As you release those limiting stories and beliefs about yourself, you can make room for all that is waiting to emerge!
When we are triggered by someone or by a particular experience, we become less effective at our jobs and in our lives. Triggering situations lessen our capacity for successful communication, hinder our decision-making abilities, and increase our stress levels. Without proper training on how to remain calm, or how to find calmness after the situation, we remain highly reactive, which is unhealthy and can produce potentially disastrous results. Mindfulness practices have been shown by countless studies to be an antidote to many different forms of stress, including overcoming traumatic situations. The more mindfulness practices we have to draw on, the more likely we will find our own mindful path to health and healing. This session provides a framework for understanding our reaction/response to triggering situations, and offers several guided mindfulness practices for effectively navigating stressful situations, during, and after the situation has passed.
We live in an extremely monocultural society. This limits our capacity for living an enriching, full life. Mindfulness is a powerful tool for developing a multicultural life. Mindfulness practices can lessen our biases and transform our interactions with others, especially across social differences. This session provides several mindfulness practices that are useful for building relationships across social differences.
