A visit to a local museum to take a slow look at some of the works on display.

Introduction to Mindfulness and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction

Learn about mindfulness, meditation, and the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program created in 1979. Because of the experiential nature of these practices, this program offers some brief sessions of focused awareness and body awareness, thus making the presentation more interactive and engaging. The formal and informal practices covered in this program will help shed light onto the classic 8-week MBSR course, as well as explain how mindfulness and meditation can be integrated in one’s everyday life to better cope with the stresses of daily living, chronic pain, anxiety, life transitions.

Duration: 2 ½ hours

Mindful Movement and Body Scan

Move into mindfulness by discovering how to better inhabit your body in this one hour session of gentle yoga and final resting pose. This workshop provides participants with some tools to slow down and engage into some gentle movement at the work desk or at home at any time during the day

Duration: 1 hour or 1 ½ hrs depending on the group needs. This workshop can be offered either outdoor or indoor depending on time of year

Mindful Walking

Through mindful walking we step out of automatic pilot and we intentionally become aware while moving in the room, or through the environment

Mindful walking is not about the destination, it is more about becoming profoundly conscious of what is outside and inside us. While we move we can tap into our inner stillness, and be present moment by moment.

Duration: 1 hour or 1 ½ hrs depending on the group needs. This workshop can be offered either outdoor or indoor depending on time of year

Everyday Mindful Creative Expression

This 2 hour workshop offers participants the opportunity to explore mindfulness by means of creative expression. Participants will directly engage in visual and writing practices to practice self-care and unlock their inner energy. By doing so, they will also begin to establish the foundations for a daily, creative practice that helps them deepen moment to moment awareness and therefore better cope with stress, grief and physical pain.

Duration: 2 hours (this can be used also as an introduction to the Mindfulness based Creative Explorations Program)
