Mindful Meditation Part 1

Course Overview

Find your focus with mindfulness and meditation.

Mindfulness is an everyday experience, of being in the moment with awareness and being less reactive. It develops self-awareness and a sense of well-being, so we can be kinder to ourselves and others. 

Being calmer and kinder to ourselves releases oxytocin hormone, the ‘feel good hormone’. Oxytocin has a calming effect and can reduce our stress and anxiety.

Over the four sessions, we will discover some mindfulness techniques to connect with our senses, sights, sounds and touch. In addition, learn more about the impact of our brain on our thinking and reactions plus develop loving-kindness, and gratitude for ourselves and others. 

Each session typically starts with a topic discussion, mindful exercises and experiences, simple chair exercises, breathing techniques and guided meditation. There will be some homework tasks to explore and strengthen the learning. Previous attendees have reported improved sleep and an overall improved sense of wellness

You will be seated in a chair and provided with session notes. Just bring yourself and an attitude to learn and experience the benefits of mindfulness and meditation.

Hi u2013 I am Rosemary!I have been teaching Mindfulness-Meditation at NSCC for the last year. This follows a long involvement in the various styles of meditation over several decades that have assisted me with the demands of busy life. Adopting my neuroscience training and yoga teaching, I have built a program and practical activities to help people to u2018pauseu2019 and be in the present. I am always amazed by the results attendeesu2019 report. As a yoga teacher, the yoga philosophies and breathing techniques fit well into the program. The focus is on a different aspect of mindfulness and meditation with practical processes that you can apply to your daily life. The results usually include better sleep patterns and increased daily wellness.
