Demystifying Mindfulness (PCI Webinar)

Demystifying Mindfulness (PCI Webinar) Online

The Massachusetts Library System is pleased to announce that we have contracted with PCI Webinars to provide our members with access to their live webinars.  These webinars are free to MLS members who register through our calendar.  Because we are working with an outside vendor, it is important that you cancel your registration in the event that you are unable to attend the live webinar.  A recording of the webinar will be available on the PCI Webinars Niche Academy website about a week after the live webinar.  If you have any issues registering or signing into the PCI Webinars Niche Academy website, please let us know.  Please do not contact PCI Webinars or Niche Academy directly about their live webinars or webinar recordings.

Come take a break from the planning-rushing-doing-trance to reconnect with yourself and be in community! If you have been curious about mindfulness this introductory webinar is a perfect way to get your feet wet! 

Join Spirit Rock’s teacher and retreat leader Aiko Michot in an hour-long exploration of the different aspects of mindfulness. We will begin our journey with a guided meditation to enter a state of groundedness and receptivity. This will be followed by a series of fun activities to get an experiential taste of presence and how easy it is to restore our sense of aliveness, clarity and connection to what matters.

Finally, we will step into the magical space of emergence, where an individual's shared experience or question can catalyze insights for the collective. The hope is to reawaken the richness and joy that is possible when we approach each moment with an attitude of wonder and play.

As a result of this program, attendees will experience how to:

  • Foster the conditions to increase more presence in their day-to-day life
  • Set up a simple, engaging, and fun meditation practice
  • Hold a safe and accepting space to be with difficulties
  • Attune to the underlying motivations that generate compulsive thinking
  • Meet needs for empathy, understanding and compassion just by turning a kind attention inwards
  • Create a container for support, learning and growth for others
