Mindfulness and Meditation: An Introductory Experience
Facilitated by Bob Richardson & Ken Frazier
Meditation and mindfulness are time-honored ways for expanding conscious awareness and creating a state of presence. Through this program, you will learn the theory and fundamentals of mindfulness, experience various methods of meditation, and engage in meaningful discussion about your spiritual path in a small community.
Whether you are new to meditation or have a practice which you’d like to deepen, this experience very well could be for you. The program includes a half-day workshop and 4 follow-up group sessions for meditation and discussion.
Specifically, in the workshop and the follow-up sessions, you will:
- Learn the 3 basic skills of mindfulness – Attention, Kindness and Acceptance
- Begin to develop an Inner Observer which enables us to use our powers of intention and attention in both meditation as well as in our everyday lives
- Become skillful in identifying and diminishing the 4 “habits” which keep us stuck in painful cycles – Wanting, Distraction, Resisting, and Doing
