MEDITATION FOR MENTAL WELLNESS
Summer Series - Session III: Vulnerability for Mental Wellness
July 29, 2017 4pm-5:15pm
Part of mental wellness involves figuring out how to be vulnerable. It's often through taking risks (i.e., being vulnerable) that we can grow, so without vulnerability, we might stagnate. And that's not good for our mental health. So how do we step into vulnerability and get through it when we'd rather run away and hide from it? When we share ourselves, how do we listen to other people's criticism without lashing out at them or, alternately, beating ourselves up that we're not good enough?
In this session, we'll explore the lived experience of vulnerability, do some sharing about it, and dive into some meditations that can help us more mindfully navigate our vulnerability and support our capacity for self-acceptance. We'll start the session with a basic breath meditation.
