(OLLI AT UVM PRESENTS) Mindfulness Practice into Daily Life with Sojun John Godfrey

Oct 29, 2019
5:30 pm to 6:30 pm
Cohen Hall 102

Join former Zen Monk, John Sojun Godfrey, to learn practical mindfulness techniques you can incorporate into daily life. Explore ways to enhance focus, attention, and awareness to your interactions with yourself, others, and the world around you. Everyone would like to be more mindful. The research is clear about the benefits of even a few minutes of mindful breathing everyday. But, when we practice mindfulness as just one more thing we need to do, it can actually create more stress in our lives.
Mindfulness can be challenging to practice on our own, especially with a busy schedule, and to boot, many people feel they are uniquely incapable of being mindful. Bring a cushion or blanket, anything you need to feel comfortable sitting in a chair or on the floor.

Price: Member: $40 Non-Member: $60
