May is both National Meditation Month and Mental Health Awareness Month. Coincidence? Maybe. Maybe not. There’s a strong connection between meditation (also called mindfulness) and emotional health and well-being. The word “mindfulness” may make you think of someone sitting cross-legged on a meditation cushion with their eyes closed. That’s one way to practice mindfulness, but there are many others. All are forms of meditation. The goal of meditation is a state of alert, focused relaxation that comes from intentionally paying attention to the present moment without judgment.

Mindfulness impacts the brain’s ability to create new connections, also called neuroplasticity. You can consider it a mental muscle. Every time you pay attention to the present moment without judgment and work your mindfulness muscle, you strengthen your attention and self-compassion. Your brain is being rewired for calm and awareness, which leads to lower levels of stress and anxiety and improved well-being. 

Get Mindful in May is an opportunity to dive into mindfulness for one month. It’s ideal for those who have never meditated and those who already practice. Five 30-minute sessions will include a combination of lecture and guided meditation and cover different topics or paths to mindfulness. Sessions will be held at different times of day once per week during the month of May, as well as recorded for access at a later time. Resources will be shared after each session for continued learning and practice.  Please note that registration is for all sessions – if you cannot attend all five, tune in to the recording to catch up on what you missed.

Work out your mindfulness muscle and give yourself the gift of self-care in May!

Five Week Webinar Agenda:
May 1: Find Your Breath Anchor and Learn to Surf
Our breath is always with us as a tool to anchor us in the present moment. This session will focus on welcoming our whole self to experience the present moment and will include a breath awareness/body scan meditation.

May 7: Slow Down When There’s Chaos All Around
Slowing down and quieting your mind can open your attention to what’s happening around you and the wisdom inside of you. This session will focus on slowing down to experience calm amidst the chaos and will include a listening meditation.

May 18: “Through it Not Over it” to Deal with Difficult Emotions
There’s no detour around life’s challenges, so it’s important to learn how to relax into the present moment and accept what is. This session will focus on awareness as a tool to get through tough times and will include a sound/humming meditation.

May 23: The Heartfulness of Letting Go
Opening your heart to love and kindness toward yourself and others is the essence of mindfulness practice. This session will focus on cultivating seeds of compassion and will include a loving-kindness meditation.

May 31: Moving to Get Unstuck
Moving your body is like pushing the reset button to help you get unstuck from thoughts or behaviors that aren’t kind or helpful. This session will focus on movement (like drumming, walking/running, dance, yoga) as a way to heal and will include a rhythm/bilateral stimulation meditation.
