Each moment is the perfect moment to discover Mindfulness, which leads to the end of suffering. You have taken the first step toward a life of greater health and happiness. Diana and a community of friends welcomes you to cultivate new mindfulness skills in a warm, safe and nurturing setting.
8 Week (MBSR) Course - This 8 week course requires a daily commitment to mindfulness practice. We begin
by bringing a kind attention to our own bodies and breath. We expand our focus to include awareness during ordinary daily activities including moving, eating and interacting. Following brief guided instructions each
day will lead to a significant increase in your well-being. Practicing mindfulness on a regular basis brings ease
and well-being as well as many other health benefits. The course led by Diana Shimkus, LCSW is offered in North County (San Diego) several times each year.
Weekly Meditations - Practice with a community is an essential support in developing and sustaining mindfulness. The Encinitas Mindfulness Community led by Founding Teacher, Diana is a group of practitioners with varied levels of experience who come together regularly to study, meditate and share their experiences. We meet Saturdays; 7:30-9:00am, Tuesdays; 7:00-8:30am at Soul of Yoga at 627 Encinitas Blvd. Encinitas, and selected Thursdays of every month 6:30-8:00pm at our outdoor meditation space in Encinitas at 816 Passiflora Avenue, Encinitas. All are welcome to attend for no charge. Donations are gratefully accepted. August 16th will be the next Thursday Evening Outdoor Practice.
