The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin
Hello, Looking forward to meeting the group, learning, and sharing.
Help support your Meetup
We are now working with the new mindfulness based psychology called ACT, Acceptance and Commitment Training. The focus of this training is to increase our skills in 6 fundamental areas of living.
ACT commonly employs six core principles to help develop psychological flexibility:
Cognitive defusion: Learning methods to reduce the tendency to be cought up in our thoughts, images, emotions, and memories.
Acceptance: Allowing thoughts to come and go without struggling with them.
Contact with the present moment: Awareness of the here and now, experienced with openness, interest, and receptiveness.
Observing the self: Accessing a transcendent sense of self, a continuity of consciousness which is unchanging.
Values: Discovering what is most important to oneself.
Committed action: Setting goals according to values and carrying them out responsibly.
Join us as we inquire into and experience the six fundamental aspect of the ACT approach to living!
