Workshop: Train Your Attention For A More Present Life  

March 8, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm GMT

£16 – £55

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

We live in a world full of distraction and demands competing for our attention. If our life is what we attend to, how will you attend to yours?

In this two-hour workshop guided by experienced Associate Teacher, Karen Liebenguth, you will benefit from a combination of scientific theory, meditation practice, and group discussion to explore how our different attention types can be recognised in the mind and body.

Research shows that we spend 50% of our waking hours unaware of our internal and external experiences. This is because we often don’t consider what’s happening in our own minds, or where our attention has drifted to moment by moment.

The good news is that we can learn to train our attention through mindfulness. Humans have the unique and fascinating ability of metacognition or meta-awareness, which is to know we are thinking. In other words, we can pay attention to our attention.

Karen will present and explore how you can deepen and refine your existing meditation practice through learning to work with three different types of attention, known as our flashlight, floodlight and juggler attention. She will also look at new ways we can stay present and grounded, in order to live a more aware and intentional life.

WHAT I WILL GAIN FROM ATTENDING

– Explore the theory of our attention types
– Understand how working with attention can help us get more from life
– Deepen & refine your formal mindfulness practice with advanced attention training
– Develop new skills to stay present and grounded
– Learn to train attention to serve us better in times of stress & overwhelm
