“Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally.”Jon Kabat-Zinn
Mindfulness is a type of meditation that, if practiced regularly, spills over into every corner of one’s life. While a daily seated meditation practice is encouraged, mindfulness can be incorporated into every aspect of our daily lives so that we can better navigate the joys and challenges of being human. Learning how to take a breath before we react in a difficult situation, engaging more fully with others, or accessing our innate wisdom are a few of the ways that mindfulness can transform your daily existence. At the heart of mindfulness is the call to become more present in each moment.
In our mindfulness sessions, we utilize techniques learned through Penn Medicine’s Penn Program for Mindulness, as well as teachings from Buddhist nun, Pema Chödrön. Over the course of our sessions, we’ll become more aware of breath, body, and patterns of thought through a variety of meditation exercises. Our goal is to fully experience each moment as it happens, and find peace and relaxation right in the middle of the most chaotic moment.
“Meditation practice isn’t about trying to throw ourselves away and become something better. It’s about befriending who we are already.”Pema Chödrön
