Taming the Mind with Mindfulness: Working with Thoughts, Emotions & Mental Patterns

An 8 week course

With Gil Stevens
Monday Evenings
April 15 – June 10   (no class on Memorial Day)
7:00 PM-9:00 PM
At: Restore Chiropractic, 205 W. Lancaster Avenue, Wayne, PA

When we practice mindfulness, we begin to see that the mind has a life of its own. Thoughts come up all by themselves, whether we like it or not. Like waves, they just keep on coming. They may start quietly, but they build in strength, and often carry us away into emotions, reactivity, stress, confusion and unhappiness. Everyone knows how it feels. We experience it every day. And the truth is, when we are unaware and unschooled, our thoughts and reactive emotions are running our life.

The purpose of mindfulness meditation is to tame the mind, discover the mental patterns and emotions that re-peat unconsciously, so that we can release their hold on us and live our lives with greater wisdom and contentment.

Classes include guided meditation, talks, and discussions. Students are encouraged to take up a regular, daily meditation practice. All classes are recorded and made available on a weekly basis as a support for practice and to make sure you don’t miss anything, even if you can’t attend. This course is also available as recordings only.

Who should attend? This Foundation level course is for experienced mindfulness meditators who want to strengthen, deepen or renew their practice.

I am really grateful for this teaching. I have been longing for a non-denominational approach to spirituality that is practical and that I can relate to. This course has been very satisfying and I look forward to more like it! Thank you.Past Course Participant
