September 2018 Mindfulness Classes
at Swansea Center for Yoga and Mindfulness
Introduction to Mindfulness
Saturday mornings 10-12
Sept 8 - Oct 20 (no class Oct 6)
This 6-week course is an introduction to Mindfulness for people with all levels of experience. The effective tools of meditation, body scan and gentle yoga can support people with no previous experience of meditation. If you already have a practice, this class can bring a fresh perspective and energy to it.
We’ll gently discover how Mindfulness practice can reduce stress, while becoming more aware of our authentic being. We’ll learn how to develop a steady practice to deeply support mental, physical and emotion health. Materials include practice CDs and handouts for home practice.
This class is adapted from the 8-week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Course created by Jon Kabat-Zinn at the UMass Medical School.
Mindfulness as Emotional Wisdom
Saturday mornings 10-12
Oct 27 – Dec 8 (no class Nov 24)
This 6-week class is a further exploration of mindfulness and authenticity, for those who have taken the Introduction to Mindfulness class.
How do our emotions guide us to live more fully within our life’s authentic dream? Whether we label them positive or negative, emotions clarify what matters most to us. We honor our feelings through creative contemplations, writings, drumming and other explorations as we discover the paths where our dreams may unfold in beauty.
