Mindfulness@noon - Tune In, Open Up, Chill Out

What is Mindfulness?

Everyone agrees that when you want to improve at something, you practice. That's obvious to us when it involves physical and mental skills, work, play, etc. What's less obvious is that all those things, and more—indeed the human experience itself—is fundamentally built on awareness.

Mindfulness is simply awareness to what is happening around you and within you, and is a capacity that can be developed with practice. Mindfulness training positively effects all aspects of living life, and can dramatically increase your well-being and decrease stress and anxiety. It works by simply and gently exercising three fundamental skills:

(1) Focusing on what is relevant, (2) Sensing with increasing clarity and resolution, and (3) Allowing experience to flow through your field of awareness without push or pull.

You can think of mindfulness training as awareness exercise for a dramatically upgraded human experience.

Mindfulness@noon Class Details

It's held on Tuesdays and Thursdays 12:15-1:00, and is instructed by Dave Goldberg Sensei.

The class is included with Aikido membership in our adult program, but is also available to the public as a stand-alone option.

Each class includes guided exercises and meditations to zoom in and explore different aspects of experience. Most days you will also be using your body a bit, so wear clothing that is comfortable. We do have dressing rooms if you prefer to change out of work clothes, etc.

If you're not an Aikido of San Diego member and interested only in Mindfulness@noon, you can join in two ways: (1) You may pay $10 cash per/session when you arrive, or (2) purchase a discounted package of sessions to be used within three months (see right).

Save some time. Print and complete the class waiver/registration form in advance of your first visit.

Join the Mindfulness@noon Facebook group to keep up with class happenings and announcements.
