6:30 PM - 7:00 PM
Due to the concerns about the coronavirus, and out of an abundance of caution, the Mindfulness Meditation will be temporarily cancelled. Please check back for updates.
Practicing mindfulness meditation has been shown to increase well-being through decreasing stress and stress-related ill-being and increasing emotional intelligence and self-awareness.
Mindfulness meditation is a simple practice of focus and concentration on attention. Various exercises will be offered including mindful awareness (focusing on the breath or body) and mindful walking. Participants do not need to have any previous experience with meditation or mindfulness in order to attend. Long-time practitioners should expect a positive environment in which to continue their practice.
This FREE event is open to all and no previous experience is necessary.
James Van Auken, PhD, a long-time mindfulness practitioner and teacher, will be leading these meditations. James Van Auken received training in both Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction and Koru Mindfulness, and regularly teaches and lectures on mindfulness and leadership. James Van Auken also conducted a multi-year research study exploring mindfulness in leadership, the outcomes of which highlighted the importance of having a mindfulness practice.
