Unplug from a Busy Mind Meditations, July 16 – August 6, 2021

July 16, 2021 | 12:00pm - 1:30pm

Our minds are considered to be our most valuable asset, but when incessant thinking, daydreaming, or random thoughts distract us, our own mind can become a barrier to deep peace.

Research has shown meditation to be effective for stress reduction, emotional self-regulation, improved quality of life, sleep, and behavior change, among other physical and psychological benefits. This four-part online engagement meditation course teaches you the fundamentals of meditation, so that you can learn to unplug from the stresses of a busy mind, transform emotional reactivity, and connect with a personal sanctuary of inner calm. 

You will be guided through three of the most universal meditation techniques, including breathing mindfully, witnessing the mind, and body mindfulness to support you in cultivating a rewarding meditation practice. You will have the opportunity to explore a range of techniques to establish a morning or evening meditation ritual with a variety of 5-25 minute guided meditations to begin your day mindfully, or settle into deep sleep. When practiced regularly, the results of increased awareness can become integrated into your everyday life, easing symptoms of a negative mind, enabling you to think more clearly and creatively, and allowing you to rest when it is time to replenish.

Instructor: Tarika Lovegarden is the author of Meditations on the Fridge.
