NEW GROUP! Please support & join us to "Hack Your Brain"!! In this group, led by TEDx health psychologist Dr. Lindsay Bira, you will be challenged to think in a different way, will learn some brain science along with different forms of mindfulness, and will use your senses to fully soak up the beauty of what we all love ... the beach! It's a great place for beginners to learn more AND for those with lots of experience to deepen their practice! We practice different styles of mindfulness and meditation (breath, sound, nature, walking, eating, mantra, focused intention, etc.) with a variety of self-growth themes (self-esteem, destructive thought patterns, love & kindness, forgiveness, letting go of guilt, etc.) all through a mindfulness approach based on research and brain science.
Dr. Bira is a TEDx speaker and Nature published researcher who has her Ph.D. in clinical health psychology and thus offers something different than you will find at other meetups in the community. With a focus on health, wellness, fulfillment and self-growth, you can expect to learn science-based tools that will adjust your perceptions and help you make positive shifts even after you leave the group. In addition, having the group in awesome nature WITH distractions around us adds a deeper layer than quiet practice does: It helps you learn to resist distractions and re-train your brain to let go of stress and judgment. This translates into a skill you can apply everywhere, in all areas of your life!
Mindfulness practice trains your mind and body to regulation emotion and pay attention in a helpful way. When we do so, we can achieve relaxation while learning to accept & release distress caused by the distractions of everyday life. Taking time for mindfulness can help maintain health & happiness, improve attention, improve emotional regulation and promote self-growth. We can practice this in many ways, and these ways are never ending! Click http://www.DrLindsayBira.com/mindfulness to get more details about the group Dr. Lindsay Bira leads in other communities.
