12:00:00 PM - Using Mindfulness Concepts to Enhance your Life - Mindfulness can best be described as an intentional focused awareness-a way of paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, without judging our experience. Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is a program created by the Center for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center over three decades ago. MBSR has been taught worldwide in a variety of settings, including in the fields of education, law, health care, business, athletics, and criminal justice. People who have completed the MBSR program and continue to practice mindfulness report a sense of peace and calmness as they learn how to use their innate resources to respond more effectively to stress and the challenges of daily life. People also report being able to focus better and improve performance with greater insight and creativity. This session will introduce you to mindfulness concepts and skills and discuss application that may benefit your life.
