About the Session:

Being mindful is all about awareness - awareness of thought, emotion, sensations and surroundings. It’s also about being curious and kind to yourself about what you discover when paying attention to these things in the present moment. Over time, it can help you to begin to respond intelligently to life’s stressors rather than reacting blindly. The practice of mindfulness is one of the most powerful things you can do to enhance your well-being and you don’t need anything but a little guidance to get started. This session provides a glimpse into the benefits of a mindfulness practice. We’ll demystify mindfulness techniques for people curious about starting a formal practice and offer simple, informal practices to help you live more mindfully in your daily life.

This learning opportunity is being offered through a grant from Alberta Education.
