Uncover the benefits of taking time to be mindful, and learn resources for establishing a regular mindfulness practice.

Description

What is mindfulness, and how can practicing it affect our everyday lives? Join us as we explore some of the research that’s been done on practicing mindfulness, and learn several guided practices that you can do every day, whenever you need to re-anchor yourself in the present moment. Through instruction and group discussion, we’ll uncover the benefits of taking time to be mindful, and leave with resources for establishing a regular mindfulness practice.

Michele Pola, PhD, started her journey in 2007 into mindfulness initially through yoga, and in 2017 became a certified yoga Instructor with Yoga Alliance at Joy Yoga University. In 2018, she became a trained facilitator through Mindful Awareness Research Center (MARC) of the Semel Institute of Neuroscience and Behavioral Medicine at UCLA. Today, she serves as a teacher of mindfulness with The Jung Center's Mind, Body, Spirit Institute, after having retired in 2014 with 35 years in the public and non-profit sector of education. Dr. Pola is an active member of American Leadership Forum (ALF) and has served numerous professional organizations, both as a volunteer and as a board member. One of her passions, after studying with Mark Coleman author of Awake in the Wild, is practicing mindfulness in nature. Michele offers private mindfulness sessions in nature by appointment.
