What is mindfulness?
Mindful awareness is the basic human ability to be fully present in each moment, aware of where we are and what we are doing. This awareness gives us the choice to respond in ways that support health and well-being for ourselves, our loved ones, and our communities. Directly experiencing the world produces a state of awareness that frees you from habitual thoughts, feelings, emotions, and preconceptions.
What is included in this mindfulness training class?
This mindfulness training class includes fun creative exercises that help illustrate how our minds form patterns. This class also explores how our creativity may be impacted by fear of social acceptance. Regular mindfulness practice will help you identify your thought patterns so you can respond to thoughts in new, healthy ways. People who practice mindfulness regularly tend to adapt their cognitive processing much more quickly. This ability helps them notice their thoughts and sense emotions in the body. Divergent thinking is also a benefit from mindfulness training. Finding creative solutions and solving problems that require insight becomes much easier.
This class also includes a couple of simple drawing practices that are accessible to everyone, regardless of drawing skills. These drawing practices help you to focus and relax, allowing your mind to settle, relax, and be free from judgment.
