What is mindfulness and meditation?
Mindfulness is maintaining a moment to moment awareness; it means to live in the present moment. This awareness can be towards our thoughts, emotions, body, and environment. The awareness also comes with acceptance; we do not judge anything we experience as “good” or “bad”. Through mindfulness, we are given the opportunity to not live worrying about the future or ruminating on the past - but rather we begin to practice enjoying the present. Meditation is the practice of concentrated focus on a sound, object, visualization, the breath, movement, or attention itself in order to increase awareness of the present moment, reduce stress, promote relaxation, and enhance personal and spiritual growth.
Now you may be thinking, "I've heard about this meditation stuff before, and I don't think it's right for me or it hasn't worked in the past." That absolutely may have been your experience up until this point! I'm here to let you know that there are tons of ways that one can practice mindfulness and meditation besides just sitting still and being quiet, and the entire point of these 10 classes is for you to "try on" every style and decide which is best for you!
I firmly believe that finding the right style of mindfulness and meditation for you is like finding the right style of exercise. Think about it - if someone told you that you needed to go out and run for 30 minutes a day (the most traditional form of exercise we all can think of), how motivated and excited are you going to feel for that? Some individuals may love that idea! But a lot of people won't feel that's the right form of exercise for them or find it enjoyable. Now if someone said, that you could try out a Zumba class, go swimming, or go play some pick up games of your favorite sport? Now we're talking. The important thing is that you have options, and when you're able to explore and try out lots of different styles you ultimately find the right fit for you. And when you find the right fit for you, then this motivates you to do it more often and you get to enjoy the benefits that come with this.
It's the same with mindfulness and meditation. If someone told you that you needed to sit down in silence for 30 minutes a day, what is your first reaction? Again, for some individuals this is the style that works for them and that is amazing! However, for others, this doesn't sound appeasing. If you had the opportunity to explore several different styles of this practice though, you'll eventually find the style that you feel drawn to and enjoy practicing.
During our time together we'll learn the foundations of Mindfulness and Meditation and from there dive into exploring different styles. Just a few of these examples include:
-Mindfulness & Meditation through Movement
-Mindfulness & Meditation through Art
-Mindfulness & Meditation through Singing
Benefits of Meditation and Mindfulness include but are not limited to:
-Decreased anxiety & stress
