Workshop: Movement That Unlocks Mindfulness

April 13, 2024 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm UTC-7


Learn to meditate – stillness optional.

If you’re interested in meditation, but find it challenging to sit in total stillness and silence, join me for this special online workshop! We will explore movement-based meditation techniques that can unlock mindfulness for those who haven’t had much luck (yet) with traditional sitting meditation.

Do any of these meditation roadblocks sounds familiar?

• Difficulty finding a comfortable posture
• Not sure if you’re doing it right (or what’s it supposed to feel like)
• Feeling too restless and agitated
• Getting bored or distracted
• Getting overly focused on pain or challenging thoughts/feelings
• Feeling too “up in your head,” not connected to your body

In this workshop, we will talk about why movement often helps with these roadblocks, and also discuss basic mindfulness principles so you can understand the intentions behind the techniques we’re using. There will also be a “sampler platter” of very gentle mindful movements, calming breath practices, and creative meditations that don’t require complete stillness.

The practices you’ll experience will connect the dots between movement and meditation in 3 distinct ways:

• Discovering mindfulness through movement (without stillness)
• Using movement before stillness to prepare for meditation
• Incorporating subtle movements into the stillness of a seated meditation.

Bring your curiosity and a willingness to experiment! You might just open the door to a world of mindfulness benefits and insights.​
