MINDFUL EXERCISE

We practise mindful exercises in form of various guided mindfulness meditations that train your concious focus of attention on the here and now. You practise to be aware of your thoughts, emotions and bodily sensations without judging. You open your senses and plunge into the present moment. While accepting what is you may find inner calm. The exercises serve as suggestions for your own regular practise in your day-to-day life. Each exercise will be reflected on afterwards to clear any emerged questions and to exchange individual experiences.

MINDFUL THEORY

On each of the eight dates we’re going to focus on one major aspect of mindfulness (see below). Therefore we go into the nature of our mind (our thoughts) and shine a light on its strengths and weaknesses in the particular area. You learn about how you can take care of your own wellbeing by conciously focusing your attention. The theoretical content is enriched by true-to-life examples and tips that are suitable for daily use. We talk about the profound and amusing information in a humorous and casual atmosphere.

MINDFUL DIALOG

In the dialog rounds we exercise with the group to communicate in a mindful manner. One of us talks “from the heart” while the others are listening “with radical respect” and at the same time listening couciously to their own inner reactions. Everything is allowed to be: it occurs what occurs. You may just listen and observe yourself or you may follow an inner impuls to speak and be heard. The exchange about the current topic is essential for transporting the theory into your day-to-day life. What does it have to do with YOU?
