“Meditation practice isn’t about trying to throw ourselves away and become something better. It’s about befriending who we are already.”Pema Chödrön
At the heart of mindfulness is the call to become more present in each moment. In our mindfulness workshop, we’ll utilize techniques learned through Penn Medicine’s Penn Program for Mindfulness, as well as teachings from Buddhist nun, Pema Chödrön. 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 – so that we may better navigate the joys and challenges of being human on a daily basis.
“Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally.”Jon Kabat-Zinn
