Mindfulness Training Groups

Mindfulness training groups are specifically designed to help individuals live their lives to the fullest, and to do so by actually living in the moment. This training focuses on informal mindfulness practices (the day-to-day practice of mindfulness in your everyday life).  Mindfulness training group explores the works of Jon Kabat-Zinn, Marsha Linehan, Tara Brach, Thich Nhat Hanh, Adyashanti, Donald Altman, and Michael Singer, among others.

 

Mindfulness is awareness cultivated by paying attention in a sustained and particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally (not labeling things as good or bad).

 

It can be practiced formally (engaging and making some time every day) or informally (letting the practice spill over into every aspect of your waking life in an uncontrived and natural way).

 

Mindfulness enhances flexibility and adaptability.  If an individual has felt stuck and frustrated by old habits, mindfulness skills promote methods for retraining the brain to get off auto-pilot.  It teaches us how to put on the breaks and slow down before acting on an impulse.

 

Mindfulness cultivates curiosity and greater ease.  It helps one explore the journey and the process, as opposed to being overly focused and worried about an outcome.  

 

Mindfulness changes one’s relationship to self-critical and self-blaming thoughts, thus promoting greater patience, kindness, acceptance, and compassion towards oneself and others

 

Mindfulness encourages greater fulfillment in daily life by focusing more on the present moment. We tend to spend most of our time in thoughts of the past or the future.  This way of being creates feelings of anxiety and depression, and limits our experience of our life.
