 August 18th: Being with what is happening
This session willexplore meditation as a safe place to deeply listen, witness and be with all experiences. Participants will practice techniques to break free from unhelpful thought patterns and to meet difficult emotions with more compassion and care.

 August 20th: Restoring a more balanced view
One of the mind’s survival strategies is being able to quickly detect threats or problems. While this can be helpful in keeping us safe, it can also perpetuate a chronic state of stress and anxiety. In this session, participants will learn how to use heart practices such as gratitude, compassion, love, and generosity to restore a more balanced perspective on reality.

Aiko Michot is certified by Mindful Schools and has been teaching Mindfulness to youth and adults in the Bay Area since 2016. She offers a safe setting for participants to conduct their own investigation about the physical, emotional and mental processes that make up their experience. Her workshops include guided meditations, interactive exercises, diads and group discussions to create an engaging student-centered learning community.
