Offerings:

Mindfulness in Motion (50 minutes)

Beginning a seated meditation practice is challenging for a variety of reasons. By understanding that a meditation practice can be found in any environment, regardless of external factors, we open ourselves to the simplicity of meditation. Mindfulness in Motion shows how daily activities can provide an entry point to formal meditation or simply serve as informal practice opportunities. Participants learn how to bring mindful awareness to everyday actions in the workplace and beyond. All practices are secular, gentle, and near-zero impact

The 50-minute session includes:

  1. Introductory presentation on mindfulness*, emphasizing the fundamentals of sensory perception and its relationship to emotional regulation
  2. Two guided movement-based mindfulness practices 
  3. Discussion/Q&A
  4. Suggestions and resources for continued practice (PDF)

*It may be helpful,  but is not required, for participants to have taken Mindfulness 101. Coming soon: An in-depth version of three 50-minute sessions.
