For those who want to live a more engaged and balanced life, there is a way of being and doing that allows one to live life more fully through the practice of mindfulness. Mindfulness is a human quality, a way of learning to pay wise attention to what is happening in the present moment, with non-judgmental awareness.
Sound (Center for Music, Creative Arts & Mindfulness), a renovated historic chapel at 31 Hawleyville Road, will host a free “Introduction to Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)” program on Monday, September 23. The program will run from 6:30 to 8 pm.
Sheila Wall will lead the free program. For those who wish to continue, an eight-week program will be offered Mondays, September 30 to November 18.
MBSR is an evidence-based, structured complementary medicine and wellness program that uses mindfulness as a way of learning to tap into one’s inner resources, empowering people to respond rather than react to stress, pain and illness.
Ms Wall has her masters of social work from NYU and completed the professional MBSR Practicum, Center for Mindfulness, UMass Medical Center. She has been a yoga and meditation practitioner since 1975.
