We live in an age where, whether we want it or not, we are bombarded with far more information than our minds can process. The flood of information at our fingertips can overload the senses and confuse us with a myriad of emotions. Overwhelmed? Dissatisfied? Conflicted? Check. Check. And well, check. Most of us share these experiences. We have all been there and felt the impact of not being able to cope with the demands of our daily lives. In the end, all of us are searching to find something that is genuinely satisfying and makes us happy. If you have ever felt lost in this society, a society that projects mostly unrealistic ideas about how to attain true happiness, rest assured – you are not alone.
Fortunately, pausing in our daily lives can help us to navigate through a culture that is overly focused on how we look, act, work, and study, and allow us to arrive … back at ourselves.
It’s not a quick fix, but by learning to pause, we can gradually turn moments of fear and uncertainty into moments of realization and self-knowing. Over time, we stop sabotaging ourselves, and we come to face the things that scare us.
Interested in learning more? PAUSE is a free 2.5-hour workshop created to introduce university students to the basics of Meditation and Mindfulness. Participants in this workshop will be introduced to these useful tools, and guided on incorporating them into daily life
Our next session is April 30, 2016 from 1-3:30pm. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to RSVP.
