*Workshops can be facilitated in a multitude of locations (rock shop, yoga studio, wellness center, etc). If you are interested in hosting one of our workshops in your space, please contact us for more information.
Class 2 (Body Awareness): The is the second workshop in the Everyday Mindfulness Series. Here we will be getting in touch with our bodies and learn how to sync the body and mind using a variety of breathing techniques. Connecting with our bodies can also help ground us, allowing us to feel more at home in ourselves. We will also use Mudras (symbolic hand gestures) to help achieve or release certain emotions and feelings. All with discussing ways to incorporate body awareness into our everyday lives.
Class 3 (Sound Therapy and Mantras): After we have a solid meditative foundation, we can begin to add tools to help achieve an even deeper state of awareness. Sound and Mantras (a word or sound repeated) can aid our concentration in meditation and have been used for thousands of years.During this workshop we will be touching on different methods to get in tune with our sense of sound. We will also experiment with using our voice through toning and several different chants. Our voice is a huge part of communicating our feelings and emotions, which in turn, can better connect us with those around us.
Class 4 (Color Therapy and The Chakras): We established a meditative base, tuned into our body awareness and used the vibration of sound. This next workshop in the series will be touching on colors and how to use them to help you get more in tune with the visual world around you. Certain colors elicit certain emotional responses and can be used with what we wear, how we decorate our home as well as in meditation. We will be experimenting with different colors and discussing how we can use them to help us find balance and peace in our everyday lives. We will also be discussing the chakras of the body, and each of their correlating colors to bring everything we have learned so far together.
Class 5 (Mindfulness in a Community): The past workshops have focused primarily on bringing mindfulness into YOUR personal everyday life. But part of being conscious is bringing that mindfulness into OUR communities and even our own families. practicing maintaining a meditative state of mind as we converse with others. We will also be exploring accessing our hearts when it comes to interacting with strangers. At the end of the workshop, there will be a group meditation to connect with Earth and the Universe and help bring a sense of unity to the space around us. There will also be time to check in, ask questions or share experiences about meditative practices from any of the workshops.
