with Lindsay Goodlin
Have you ever gotten into your car and driven somewhere so automatically that you don’t remember how you got there? With the constant pressures and busyness of modern life, a lot of us end up going about our days on autopilot without even realizing it. We’re so busy, in fact, that we sometimes even forget to breathe! Rushing through our experiences doesn’t give us much opportunity to enjoy them or to slow down long enough to decide how we want to react in certain situations, but there is an antidote to our lack of presence, and that is to adopt a Mindful way of living. Practicing mindfulness has been shown to have a myriad of benefits, including reducing stress and emotional reactivity, boosting memory, focus and immunity, increasing relationship satisfaction and improving overall quality of life. You can practice mindfulness anywhere at any time and you don’t need anything to do it. In my personal life and in my work as a therapist, I have yet to find a better tool than Mindfulness for living a happy, purposeful life. In this workshop, we will explore the true meaning of Mindfulness and I will teach you how to implement Mindfulness Practice to help you be more present in your daily life. This will be an experiential training and participants will be welcome to share as much or as little as comfortable.
