Mindfulness has mainstreamed from a 2,500 year-old wisdom tradition to an increasingly prevalent and essential place in personal development, healthcare and the workplace. This six session course offered by Jay Daugherty is designed to give a solid foundation in establishing a mindfulness practice that can cultivate awareness in your personal and professional life. No previous experience with meditation is necessary but the course is open to those with previous experience looking to refresh and refine their practice.
Each session will progressively develop and harness the mind’s inherent ability to live and work with more efficiency, ease, and recreate calm and clarity that can be applied to any moment in the day. Students will learn where to place attention moment-to-moment, neutralize the inner critic, to respond instead of reacting, and cultivate compassion towards the self and others. Each week will include teachings, experiential practice, dyads, and discussion with questions & answers. Links to guided meditations and more material will be provided.
