How Do I Start Meditating?
Facilitated by Troy Bronsink.
Our minds are filled with busy, unexamined habits. Maybe you’ve noticed that these habits, left unchecked, can lead to cut-off relationships, addictive habits, feeling overwhelmed or a general loss of inspiration. Contemplative mindful practices, just 20 minutes a day, can help expose these habits and offer awareness to rewire our thinking. But where does one get started in a way that can last? Neuroscience now confirms that 8 weeks of such a practice changes the gray matter in your frontal cortex, the part of the brain that regulates knee-jerk reactions and anger, as well as opens neural pathways across hemispheres of the brain accessing imagination and authentic compassion.
Learn these practices in a small group that will offer weekly discussion, a safe place of discovery, and facilitation that helps “demystify” the work while integrating it with your everyday challenges around work, family, and community. Participants should expect to spend 20 minutes a day working on the practices explored in class. This class is limited to 10 people.
We can’t think our way into a new way of living; we must live our way into a new way of thinking.
