An Evening's Introduction to Mindfulness

Have you been curious about mindfulness and it's benefits? This one-evening class offers an accessible and hands-on introduction to mindfulness. Simple practices of breathing and mindful movement will support our discussion as we explore mindfulness from the inside out. After this course you will have a good idea whether you'd like to pursue mindfulness training further.

We will:

  • Discuss the origins of mindfulness
  • Touch on stress physiology
  • And explore how mindfulness practices can help us engage in our relationship to experience, reducing stress and enhancing well-being.

Recent research shows that Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) - the type of mindfulness taught by Mindfulness Northwest - has these effects:

  • Reduces chronic pain and boosts the immune system
  • Addresses painful mental states like depression and anxiety
  • Minimizes emotional reactivity and promotes well-being
  • Increases flexible attention and sharpens mental focus
  • And actually thickens grey matter in the areas of empathy and problem-solving.
  • Happiness is a delightful by-product.
