People spend almost half of their waking hours thinking about something other than what they are doing. If our own minds wander so frequently, how can we be present with others? Mindfulness is the practice of noticing and accepting the current moment without judgment. Tibetan meditation specialist Alejandro Chaoul, Ph.D., and psychologist Michael Winters, Ph.D., share Eastern and Western perspectives on mindfulness, offering strategies that may enhance presence and meaning in your relationships with romantic partners, children, friends, co-workers and others. Whether you seek to deepen an already strong bond or fortify a relationship facing challenges, learn to bring more mindfulness to your interactions. Individuals and couples are welcome in this supportive course with in-class exercises and optional weekly practices. No previous mindfulness experience is necessary.
