The intention of this workshop is to deepen our understanding of mindfulness from the inside out. So often mindfulness is taught as a cognitive process that focuses on Attention. However mindfulness is a rich and multifaceted way of living involving an embodied presence that integrates all aspects of what it means to be human: heart, body, mind and soul. The workshop weaves together experiential meditation practices with revolutionary findings in neuroscience as we explore the different facets of mindfulness. Further, through embodied mindful movement we will experience how mindfulness is an embodied, rather than a mental practice. We will discover together how mindfulness cultivates greater health, joy and wisdom in our personal and collective lives. Be prepared for unexpected insight and delight.
