Mindfulness, it turns out, doesn't start in your head. Recent advances in science are showing that mindfulness is actually a state of interconnected awareness that exists between the mind and body. Understanding how to access this state through mindful practices, and making such practices a part of your wellness routine, can lead to vitally important health benefits. The Awake Naps Webinar will teach you about just such a practice.
Awake Naps is an experiential program that will teach you a simple and effective way to quiet your mind and body. This 40-minute webinar begins with a brief introduction, followed by a self-assessment that will help you evaluate how effective you are at quieting your thoughts as the session begins. You will then participate in a guided meditation process that draws it's structure from the Feldenkrais Method® of movement. We will then repeat the self-assessment, so that you can measure the program's effectiveness.
The only requirement for the movement portion of the program is that you sit comfortably in a chair in a quiet spot where you will not be interrupted or distracted by anyone or anything. With your eyes closed, you will follow a series of instructions* to perform simple, gentle movement sequences while also making a series of sensory observations. The process is easy to learn, extremely comfortable, and only takes a few minutes. Once you have learned the basic structure of Awake Naps lessons, you will be able to practice on your own.
