Mindfulness is for Everyone

Integrating Mindfulness from a Secular and Early Buddhist Perspective

Dave Smith

Type: Workshop

During the last three decades, the practice of mindfulness has rapidly grown in the mainstream culture as a verifiable tool for stress reduction, emotional management, and psychological well-being. Join 1440 Multiversity faculty member and internationally recognized Buddhist meditation teacher Dave Smith as he provides background and tips for this popular practice to help bring you ease, peace of mind, and comfort that may be needed in your life.

While there is no universal definition for the word mindfulness, it carries a very wide range of meaning. This can be confusing to those who are new to the practice. In this two-hour webinar, Dave will teach you that some camps of mindfulness place a lot of emphasis on the physical and somatic components of mindfulness, while others use it in conjunction with therapy or even as an alternative to therapy and medication. You will also learn that many identify the role of mindfulness as having better management over thoughts and emotions that allow for more choice and ease in their lives, while others see it as a core aspect to their Buddhist or Dharma practice.
