What is Mindfulness?

“Mindfulness occurs when we wake up from the automatic pilot of our habitual mind. We notice where our attention is in any given moment and decide whether keeping it there serves us. Intentionally we observe our present moment experience more objectively, with interest, receptivity, and curiosity. From here we find the space to respond to whatever life throws at us, rather than react mindlessly from our conditioned habits and assumptions. With practice, Mindfulness helps us to truly live our life, rather than be lived by it.”

Audrey Walzer

Audrey Walzer has taught hundreds of Ventura County residents how to manage stress and live with greater ease and happiness, using the tools of science-based, secular Mindfulness Meditation, within the structure and support of a group setting.
 

Who Can Practice Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is for everyone, from all walks of life, young or old. Mindfulness is not a religion – anyone, with any belief system, can benefit. Mindfulness research in the United States and across the globe has scientifically correlated mindfulness to stress reduction.

The common experience of people who think “I really should meditate” is to feel frustrated and unsuccessful when they try it.I tried meditation once, and I just couldn’t clear my mind. ” This can make you feel like there is something wrong with you, that everyone else “gets it”, but you don’t. However, this is because the underlying assumption is incorrect: Meditation is not a magic mind-clearing trick.

Mindfulness Meditation gives us tools to work with the mind wandering, the thoughts, feelings and bodily sensations that naturally arise for everyone when we finally take time out of the frantic rush of our lives to be present to ourselves and our experience right now. When we apply the tools of Mindfulness on a regular basis — when we actually practice, as opposed to reading a Facebook article about it, we become more emotionally resilient and aware, so even in the face of difficulties we feel a sense of deep inner calm, both in formal meditation practice, and in our lives all day long. This sense of deep equanimity and joy at being alive, within the inevitable ups and downs of our humanness, is truly the gift of Mindfulness Meditation.

 

Why spend 10 weeks of your life immersing yourself in Mindfulness?

Mindfulness Meditation with Audrey
 
 
 

What happens in Audrey’s “Learn Mindfulness Meditation” Course? Audrey’s approach to Mindfulness has provided structure and support for hundreds of group participants to make Mindfulness an ongoing part of their lives.

For 10 weeks, you will:

  • Meet once per week with Audrey for lecture, spirited and friendly discussion, and in-class practice of the week’s Mindfulness Meditation homework.
  • Practice meditation daily with a guided meditation track provided in online format, or with a CD, both provided by Audrey and included in cost of course.
  • Read 10 – 12 pages of information relating to the upcoming week’s practices. Supplemental reading is also provided for those who want to know more.
  • Practice fun and illuminating Mindfulness exercises throughout your day at home and at work.
  • Be part of an ongoing Mindful Meditators group which stays in touch to share information and inspiration, and get together for “Mindful Meet-ups” and ongoing practice.

Homework?
I thought I was going to relax?

All homework is entirely optional – we don’t check it… However, in the words of Jon Kabat-Zinn – “Meditation is not relaxation spelled differently.” While our participants do report feeling more relaxed and at ease, sleeping better and relating better with family and at work… this did not come from laying down, zoning out and getting a massage (which is a wonderful thing to do also… but different). It’s natural in our busy lives to feel like we just don’t have time to fit in one more thing. Our participants and people the world over will tell you that applying yourself to truly understand and embody the practice of Mindfulness will help you live your busy life differently, with less reactivity, stress and worry, and greater emotional resilience, productivity and joy. The time you spend initially will pay off handsomely going forward!
