NOTE: This Session Only!
We will meet in Classroom 2
1st floor, east hallway
About The Presentation
This presentation is about learning to accept immense difficulties in one’s life. With the use of mindfulness, there are many tools to guide us in letting go of what is not serving us in our lives. To be mindful means to really be. Dr. Lisa Templeton, a local Cognitive-Behavioral Psychologist, will review a variety of ways to “be” in the world that allow for more fluidity, flexibility and openness in our lives. The presentation will discuss learning how to be wherever you are, to be with love, spirit, God and/or The Divine, to be with joy and gratitude, to be caring and compassionate with yourself, as well as to be with your thoughts and your emotions. The presenter will also share some difficult experiences in her life and how she continues to learn to let it be. The presentation is taken from Dr. Lisa’s book with the same title, which is in the process of becoming published.
