James Barazin sykähdyttävä Awakening Joy mindfulness-päivä nyt Läsnäolon tilassa! Ohjaus on englannin kielinen.
True happiness is not about acquiring anything but rather opening to the natural joy and aliveness right inside you. This daylong workshop is based on the popular 5-month Awakening Joy course that thousands have taken since 2003 to develop our natural capacity for well-being and happiness.
We will learn basic principles and experiential exercises presented in a user-friendly way to deepen true well-being in our lives. Techniques for developing gratitude, learning to love yourself, opening up to difficulties as a path to joy, and finding joy in the happiness of others will be offered.
Joy is a general feeling of aliveness and well-being that is characterized by engagement with life, meeting its ups and downs with authenticity and perspective. It can look very different from person to person, from a quiet sense of contentment to bubbly enthusiasm. That will be one of your discoveries—identifying how joy expresses itself uniquely through you. Please note: You do not have to be a “joyful person” to benefit from this workshop, though you might have fun anyway.
