Full Presence Mindfulness: An Introduction
Full Presence Mindfulness (FPM) is mindfulness differently. It looks at the way the mind works and how we live our lives, and asks how it could be otherwise.
So often we are lost in our thoughts, caught up in our emotions, and distracted by our concerns. The first step in changing these patterns is to ground in experience, and FPM offers simple exercises to do that. Next, we look at the stories we tell and the stories we live and the limits they set. Finally, we introduce a new way of working with time, cutting the momentum of negativity. We learn to be intimate with our own experience and open to ourselves and others. Free from what we take for granted, we can act on our own highest values.
All participants will receive a copy of Full Presence Mindfulness: A Pocket Companion.
This workshop takes place in-person at our headquarters at 2018 Allston Way, Berkeley, CA. Please note that this workshop is NOT available online. A separate online version will be scheduled at a later date.
