Saturday, March 14, 2020; 9:00 am-11:30 am and 12:30pm-3:00pm at the Counseling office: 304 N. George St., Millersville, PA 17551

This 2-session course is designed to introduce the concepts of mindfulness and mindfulness strategies in a purposeful way in order to facilitate the integration of mindfulness into your daily life.

“Mindfulness is awareness that arises through paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgmentally. It’s about knowing what is on your mind,” Jon Kabat-Zinn. As we learn to create purposeful present moment awareness we begin to see the changing of things in our lives that cause us stress. We learn to relate to our difficulties in life with more openness, compassion, and acceptance.

Mindfulness concepts covered will include: Mindfulness and the scientific research, Mindfulness of the breath and body, Obstacles to mindfulness, Mindfulness with difficult emotions, Mindfulness with difficult thoughts

Mindfulness Meditation practices will include:  Mindfulness of breath and body, Sensory mindfulness, Mindful eating, Mindful movement

Each session will be a combination of practice, lecture, and group discussion. Each session is taught in a supportive environment with no more than 6 people. The sessions are open to all ages, backgrounds, and religions.

Cost: $95.00 for the 2 sessions (full day sign up here) and materials needed for the course. You may sign up for Morning only here for a cost of $50.00 or afternoon only here for a cost of $50.00. Kelly F. Dennis MS LPC is the facilitator. Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com
