Mind Full or Mindful: Building a Practice of Being Present

Sat, 02 Nov 2019 1:30 PM

Where is your attention during a busy day? During a walk in the park? How often are you worried about the future (anxiety) or ruminating on the past (depression)? On this experiential journey, we will learn how to connect with all aspects of the self: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. We’ll discover how to bring present-moment awareness into everyday activities and how to mitigate the pain of being disconnected from the present. We will learn about the differences between human being and human doing. Through simple, reflective self-awareness exercises, led by an SFU clinical counsellor, you’ll gain tools to help you find balance in day-to-day life.

This free event is co-sponsored by the Liberal Arts and 55+ Program and the SFU Seniors Lifelong Learners Society.

Date(s): Sat, Nov 2, 1:30-3 p.m.

Location: Room 1900, SFU Vancouver (Harbour Centre)

Admission: Seats for Free Forums are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis on the day of the talk. While we cannot guarantee or reserve seats, there will be 200 available.
