Awake in this Moment: Sitting and Walking Meditation
Mindfulness meditation is based in the traditional practice of vipassana meditation. Vipassana means “clear seeing.” Mindfulness practice teaches us how to see and be with our lives as they are. We learn to be present with our thoughts, emotions and conditioned patterns. When we become aware of the thoughts, emotions and patterns that “catch” us, we realize we have the power to transform those patterns that no longer serve us.
But there’s more to mindfulness practice than simply being in the moment. If you’ve ever practiced—or tried to practice—meditation, you likely know that it’s not easy. This course will offer a variety of basic skills and techniques to help your mind settle into the present moment with greater ease.
Mindfulness practice is appropriate for anyone seeking to live a more harmonious life.
