Mindfulness Meditation Workshop

about this event

In honor of May being Mental Health Awareness Month, Marina is hosting a spectacular Mindfulness Meditation Workshop

Mindfulness is the practice of purposely bringing one’s attention in the present moment without evaluation, a skill one develops through meditation or other activities. Decades of neuroscience studies show the power of mindfulness to relieve stress, awaken our positive capacities, and bring balance to our lives. Mindfulness gives us the power to meet any situation wisely, to be fully present, and to operate with compassion. When we can look more clearly into ourselves and our life situation, new possibilities naturally open up for transforming difficulties and emerging stronger and wiser.

What to expect from this two hours workshop:

  • Simple seated breath meditation
  • Walking meditation
  • Eat with mindfulness- raisin meditation
  • Cultivate compassion to yourself and others through Loving Kindness Meditation
  • Discussion and sharing
  • Final body scan relaxation meditation

Requirements:  Willingness to show up for yourself wherever you are

What to bring: A journal
