By now, most of us have at least heard of some benefits of meditation, such as; improved memory and attention, reduced stress and anxiety, increased energy, awareness, and compassion, boosted immunity to illnesses. In fact, a growing body of research suggests that we can’t afford not to meditate – for our own health and sanity.
Let 2017 be the year that you commit to a regular meditation practice, or even take your current practice to the next level. Join Lisa Lopes in a series of mindfulness-based guided meditations. The emphasis of a mindfulness practice is awareness without judgement. Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD, professor emeritus at the University of Massachusetts Medical School in Worcester, designed the most popular form of mindfulness meditation in the United States called Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR). In addition to the benefits of meditation listed above, MBSR was originally designed to help patients with chronic pain manage their pain symptoms. This workshop series will incorporate MBSR, Kundalini (with an emphasis on chakra energy), and Buddhist (emphasis on breath) meditation practices.
Each class will include a guided meditation and either a pranayama (controlled breathing) or a mantra (chanting) exercise.
In addition to being an Ayurvedic consultant, Lisa completed a Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction training and as a regular meditator, is passionate about bringing this incredible technique into the lives of all who are interested.
WHEN: Series begins on Wednesday, February 1st, 2017, from 7:00PM – 8:00PM, and runs for 6 consecutive weeks.
