Finding More Moments
Tuesday, September 17, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM (PDT)
Oak Park, IL
Do you have sticky notes on the fridge, at your computer, maybe even in your car with little messages to yourself, you know, those short reminders, to-do lists, errands? I sure do, and they help, mostly, to remind me of what's up next.
"Just breathe," however, is the one that helps me the most. Sounds silly, doesn't it, since we’re all breathing all the time, yet it’s true.
Did you know that as you intentionally slow your breathing, time actually begins to downshift? By "just breathing" you can actually find more moments vs. running ahead of yourself into this afternoon! If you’re short on time, "just breathing" can actually afford you more time in your day--amazing!
Join me on Tuesday September 17th from 6:30-8:30 p.m. for Finding More Moments. In this 2-hour workshop will :
- Observe what ‘grabs’ you the most to take you out of the moment (good since you’re looking for more!)
- Tune into your moods & work with them by increasing self awareness and choice
- Learn the skill of focusing your attention & energy, and increasing your concentration
As a result you’ll see where and how you can actually Find More Moments in your life each day, leaving the workshop with at least one take away practice that you can begin to use immediately.
This workshop also serves as an intro to A Mindful Course,™ an eight-week mindfulness based stress reduction course (mbsr) that provides systematic training in meditation that's set to begin on October 1st, 2013. You can sign up that night or check online for more information about the benefits of mindfulness or the class details at : http://www.q4-consulting.com/a-mindful-course/
We'll meet at One Point Center Aikido Dojo at 48 Lake Street in Oak Park, IL 60523. The cost for this workshop is $50.00. If you sign up for A Mindful Course™ (AMC) you can apply this workshop fee toward that course.
Looking forward to seeing you soon, though don't toss your sticky notes out just yet!
