In this hands-on experiential training, you will learn what mindfulness is and how it is practiced. Mindfulness training supports a present-centered, open-minded orientation towards experience which has been shown to increase resilience in the face of stress, ameliorate the factors leading to burnout, and increase engagement and creativity. You will explore the stress response and how mindfulness and mindset support healthier and more resilient outcomes in response stressors. Along the way enjoy the poetry, stress reduction, and engagement that these practices bring in a warm classroom learning community. Participants will learn hands-on mindfulness practices they can apply to work and home.
