Exploring Mindfulness-Awareness Meditation
November 3 @ 6:00 pm - December 1 @ 7:30 pm America/ChicagoUSD 45
Contact person: Janet Bronstein
Every being has awareness. It’s not even something we need to develop. It just is. What we do need is to cultivate getting in sync with our awareness. Meditation is the practice that helps us recognize and sync up with this aspect of ourselves that runs deep and wide.
Mindfulness is the attentive ability of mind. Mindfulness serves to let us track our thinking, emotions, and body sensations and stay with what is happening in any situation. While we all have the capacity to be mindful, we face many distractions that make it challenging to tap that capacity.
Mindfulness and awareness are aspects of mind that work together. Meditation practice allows us to recognize and reclaim them.
