Mindfulness is an inherent capacity we all have for being fully present in our lives. We can train ourselves to increase this capacity by practicing meditation and increasing awareness in everyday life. These are skills that can be cultivated by learning from instructors who are trained in research-backed techniques. For information about my training, click here.
Mindfulness practice can be thought of as having two primary dimensions: formal and informal.
Formal practices include the body scan, sitting practice, and mindful stretching (yoga). To sample some of these practices, click here.
Informal mindfulness practices involve bringing mindful awareness to all of our experiences, no matter what they are, throughout our daily lives. If this sounds like a tall order, the good news is that it can be learned like any other skill. To learn more about mindfulness training events, please click here.
