The meditation technique that is taught in this class uses your awareness of the present moment (and your breath), to help you stay in this moment without judging the moment (or yourself). You’ll be able to move beyond your “story” into the direct experience stabilizing your attention and presence amidst daily activities. This workshop will address:
-What is Mindfulness?
-The beginners mind
-The value of coming back to our breath, bodies, and senses – again and again
About The Boston Buddha: He’s been called the blue-collar Buddha and a happiness ambassador, and he’s all that and more — the guy you’ve just met but feel like you’ve known your whole life, the guy who has you doubled over laughing within minutes. And — oh yeah — he’s the guy who can teach you how to enjoy life.
Andy Kelley founded The Boston Buddha to help ordinary people like himself learn to detach and recharge through meditation. He prides himself on being a “regular guy” that reaches an audience that might not otherwise be inclined to meditate.
Andy studied under Dr. Deepak Chopra and Dr. David Simon, co-founders of The Chopra Center – both renowned experts in the field of mind-body medicine. Andy is currently a certified Meditation Instructor for The Chopra Center. He is also a graduate of the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program founded by Jon Kabat-Zinn at the Center for Mindfulness at UMass Medical School.
Andy has worked with companies such as Hill Holliday, Thomson Reuters, and the American Association Of University Women among others. Andy Kelley’s mantra is Meditation for Everyone.
He spends most mornings teaching his Mindfulness program in all the public elementary schools in Milton, and afternoons working with private clients and corporations – so they can be more productive in their careers and happier in their lives. No religious preaching or intimidating days of silence needed, Andy tells them all — just a minutes-a-day ritual that can ultimately lead to inner peace. Pretty simple. Very Boston Buddha!
