Description


** This event is primarily designed for clients of CIC. If you'd like to join anyway, please email wellness@cic.us. If you're interested in events geared towards the general public, feel free to check out CIC's events calendar here. **

Our daily lives are filled with things to remember, places to be, bills to pay, phones ringing, emails pinging, Facebook, Twitter, news alerts and more all demanding our attention. It is no surprise that most people feel distracted and stressed out on a regular basis. In this intro class we will be exploring the nature of our thoughts and learning to raise our focus and attention to the present moment through the practice of meditation. By learning to relax into the present moment, we can practice allowing distractions to melt away and dramatically increase our productivity, attention to detail and overall enjoyment of life.

This class will focus on:

  • LEARN TO STRENGTHEN, CALM, AND STABILIZE THE MIND
  • FOCUSED ATTENTION PRACTICES
  • TECHNIQUES TO DEVELOP ACCEPTANCE, GRATITUDE, AND NON-JUDGMENT

Matthew “Malu” Wilder has been teaching self defense, mindfulness practice and meditation for the past eight years. He is the founder of the martial arts system “Nagasu Nami” which focuses on bringing the mind and body to one fundamental awareness.Malu is a practicing Buddhist with roots in American/Tibetan Buddhism. He is the lead instructor and founder of the Mindfulness Initiative, a mindfulness and meditation training firm which works to bring meditation to public schools and corporations around the Boston area. Malu believes that through the practices of sitting and moving meditation the mind can trained to a high state of focus, kindness and tranquility.
