INTRODUCTORY COURSE FOR BEGGINERS
Aimed at people who want to learn Mindfulness techniques to improve your life and experience more inner balance, introducing simple practices in their daily lives.
Mindfulness are a series of exercises where the person is consciously focused on something concrete: an object, an image, the rhythm of your breathing, without judging or analyzing, without expectation of any kind.
In this workshop, we will learn Mindfulness Meditation techniques, different exercises practicing mindfulness body scan, sitting and walking meditation, mindful eating that will lead us to a state of mental concentration to calm our mind of the constant chatter. In addition, the context and the theoretical and historical background of Mindfulness will be provided, including teaching and experiences derived from over 30 years of the Stress Reduction Clinic at Massachusetts research.
The course has no religious content. No need to sit in awkward postures and we will practice some stretching exercises.
In the weekly meetings, we will practice techniques based on the MBSR program, we will learn tools that allow us to incorporate Mindfulness in our lives: guided meditations, body scanning and reading to cultivate inner contentment, face the difficulties, enrich the relationship with ourselves and others. As well as being in the present, in the here and now.
We will practice guided meditations and a conscious dialogue before the end of the class
8 WEEK PROGRAM BASED ON MBSR
Our Meditation program based on MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) is a personal development program based on meditation that allows us to develop balance and psychological well-being in our lives through self-regulation of attention, emotions, intentions or motivations and cognition or interpretations of what happens to us.
In eight sessions of two hours, you learn and practice meditation, stretching, breathing, relaxation and how to manage thoughts and emotions to apply them in everyday life.
The sessions are completed with weekly homework assignments at home with the help of audio, video and printed materials. They teach and practice a series of meditations related to the practice of mindfulness, so that we have the necessary tools to use them according to our needs.
Each session begins with a guided Mindfulness practice. The course is very interactive and includes sessions where participants are invited to share their meditation experience or how they came to practice in the previous week, small groups. This gives you the opportunity to learn from other people's experiences and generate debate around the subject. The exchange sessions can be an opportunity to talk about what is happening instead of judging or thinking that you are not doing well.
