How to Be Mindful Twelve Mindfulness Techniques for Everyday Life

We all spend so much time living for the next day, the next week, the next month, the next year—thinking about what we will do then, how it will be once we just

… How much of the day do we spend really inhabiting our body during the day we’re actually living in? How much of our time is our mind elsewhere—caught up in yesterdays and tomorrows?

Mindfulness, at its heart, is about being fully where we are right now: aware of what’s going inside ourselves, in our surroundings, and with the people we’re sharing the world with. But we can’t just talk ourselves into being mindful. It takes practice—regular reminders that being present energizes our body, mind, and heart, and brings us more connection, empathy, and joy. It’s also an effective way to work with the pain life brings.

In this lively, interactive, and fun weekend, four mindfulness practitioners and teachers with decades of experience share a dozen techniques to help you savor each moment of the life you’re living right now—with all its ups and downs and challenges. Join us to

  • Discover how mindful you already are
  • Explore situations and triggers that propel you out of the present
  • Bring more mindful movement into your life
  • Take time to love yourself and others
  • Laugh more often.

We take a beginner’s-mind approach: no one is an expert when it comes to the mind. Everyone comes to the next moment fresh. If you’re new to meditation, this is a great way to get started or give yourself a boost. If you have a meditative practice, this is a chance to take some quiet time away with the support of others to strengthen your present-moment-awareness reflexes.
