February 15 @ 2:00 AM - 4:00 AM

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 2:00 AM, repeating until February 22, 2020

Mindful Awareness Practices are the signature educational programs of the Mindful Awareness Research Center. These six-week classes lay the foundation for students to understand the basic principles of mindfulness, develop a personal meditation practice, and to apply the principles in their daily life on an ongoing basis.

We will learn basic and advanced tools in…

Meditation: an exercise for the brain to help train the mind to be concentrated, relaxed and present.

Breathwork: attention to and experience of natural breathing patterns to help reduce stress, clear the mind, focus, calm and center.

Mindfulness: maintaining awareness of the present moment, and one’s thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment without judgment.

Power of pause: the power inherent in the stillness and space between stimulus and response, both physical and mental. It is a suspension of activity to become wholly present and attentive.

Becoming responsive vs. reactive: developing the ability to be in the moment, to listen, to pause and respond skillfully rather than react impulsively.

Communication skills both interpersonal & intrapersonal: Interpersonal communication is the face-to-face exchange of information, feelings, and meaning through verbal and non-verbal messages including tone of voice, facial expressions, gestures and body language.

Intrapersonal communication is self-talk.  It may include internal dialogue or written personal communication, such as that in a diary or journal.

Relationship building: the ability to create connections with others through honesty, respect, and skillful communication.

Stress relief: strategies that restore physical, emotional, or mental balance and produce a sense of relaxation and harmony.

Self acceptance: the ability to recognize one’s strengths, weaknesses, and limitations, and embrace all elements of ourselves without judgment.

Letting go/letting in: letting go is letting things be as they are without attachment. Letting in is experiencing and embracing things as they are without judgment.
