Mindfulness Seminar Series
Mindfulness refers to the focusing of attention and awareness on the present. It is based on the concept of mindfulness in Buddhist meditation which since the 1970’s has been incorporated into a number of therapeutic applications within modern Psychology.
Although the roots of mindfulness come from Buddhism, it is not inherently religious; rather it helps you become more aware of the present moment by developing awareness around emotional, cognitive and physical sensations. Research suggests that mindfulness practices are useful in the treatment and management of pain, stress, anxiety, depression, disordered eating, anger management and addiction.
Mindfulness fosters the ability to inhibit those very quick emotional impulses.
This is a 6 week Seminar Series allowing participants to learn the principles of Mindfulness and incorporate it into their daily life.
