Take 5 Mindfulness Meditation Series: 5-Minute Med
Corinne Zupko, Ed.S., M.A., is a keynote speaker, adjunct professor, coach, counselor, meditation teacher, and an avid student and teacher of 'A Course in Miracles." She also practices what she preaches. After suffering from debilitating anxiety she embarked on a spiritual journey nearly two decades ago and immersed herself in finding ways of restoring her own sense of inner balance. Dedicating her career path to helping others do the same, an essential piece of her recovery was learning how to live in the present moment. Mindfulness meditation therefore plays a significant role in her life. Mindfulness has been defined as a way of paying attention in the present moment, in a non-judgmental manner. When we practice mindfulness, we observe whatever is in our present experience with an attitude of curiosity and acceptance. Many people feel they "can't meditate" because their minds "won't stop." Yet, mindfulness is all about learning how to work WITH this busy mind. This is the type of meditation that you can't "fail" at, as long as you're willing to keep bringing your wandering attention back to whatever is happening in the present moment. In this "Take 5" CD, Corinne explains the basics of mindfulness meditation and then leads you through five different 5-minute meditations. These 5-minute meditations are the beginning steps toward becoming a more mindful, present person. In an age where we are surrounded by endless distractions, learning how to be present is a critical skill that must be nurtured and maintained. All we have is right NOW. If we can't be mindful and present now, what makes us think we'll be able to be so later? Begin your day with 5-minutes of mindful awareness. End your day with 5-minutes of presence. Take 5-minutes during the day to reconnect with yourself. All you need is willingness, and the "Take 5 Mindfulness Meditation Series."
