Into to Playful Mindfulness
Tuesday Evenings | April 2nd - May 7th
Playful Mindfulness 2
Tuesday Evenings | May 14th - June 18th
Mindfulness—paying attention to the present moment with curiosity and kindness—teaches you to savor life’s joys and respond more artfully to its challenges. But it need not remain a solemn or pious pursuit. Add in a healthy dose of play and its benefits get even more powerful: more confidence, deeper calm, greater connection, and more resilient joy.
Each of these courses will help you hold your focus, explore the world with curiosity and kindness and introduce a “mindful” pause between your reactions to the world and whatever response you choose. You’ll learn to communicate with greater clarity and compassion. And you’ll come to trust yourself and your experience–and step into the improvisational experience of life.
