Mindfulness Training: An Inside Job
Mindfulness Training helps us develop non-judgmental, present-moment awareness. We get to know our own minds: the narrator in our heads, the relentless parade of thoughts, our reactivity, habitual ways we do things, our insights, our moods, preoccupations, shying away from difficulties, moments of non-busyness...the rich stew that's bubbling just beneath the surface.
Key to Mindfulness Training is the meditation instruction and guidance that sets us on the path of practice, helps us through our initial obstacles, and encourages us to keep making an effort when there might be something else we would rather be doing!! But the most important part of the training is our own exertion as we become familiar with the practice of meditation, and discoveries along the way.
Safer Mindfulness Specializes in Multi-Week Applied Mindfulness Training Programs
- Typically, 1.5-hr. weekly sessions for 7-12 weeks
- Mindfulness is introduced in relation to the program’s focus (addictions, anxiety, building resilience, workplace, etc.)
- There are presentations on topic areas, discussion in pairs and in the group, and Q&A
- “Homework” includes mindfulness practice, readings, and worksheets
- We meet via Zoom video conferencing—join from any location
The next program is “Anxiety, Stress & Mindfulness”, a 12-week workshop series, beginning in late September 2019—restricted to residents of Newfoundland and Labrador.
In June 2018, Andrew Safer's Mindfulness book was published by 2nd Tier Publishing.
