Jon Kabat-Zinn has defined mindfulness meditation as “the awareness that arises from
paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment and non-judgmentally”. It has nothing

This workshop will teach you techniques for observing your thoughts, feelings and bodily
sensations and why this is is such a powerful practice! We also discuss how to use this "off
the cushion" in our everyday life.

Mindfulness is one of the most practiced forms of meditation due to its proven health benefits and simple to use framework. Whether you are brand new to mindfulness or looking to deepen your understanding, this afternoon series will take you on a journey exploring the pillars of mindfulness.

By taking the time to understand and master each one individually you will have the foundation needed to integrate them with confidence and ease into your daily life. This series will explore the foundation, provide an interactive learning environment and allow time for true transformation.

This workshop will include formal and informal mindfulness exercises and practices. You will also have tools to take home with you after each session along with a greater understanding of yourself and the way in which you interact with the world. This series is one you won't want to miss!
