We can apply mindfulness principles to all areas of life, such as eating, socializing, exercising -- even to the words that we speak.
Mindfulness is an antidote to the unconscious, reactive way of living.
Welcome to Workshops 2019
Combining the concepts of modern cognitive science with ancient mindfulness techniques, Seventh Element, located in Rhode Island, offers programs, such as MBSR, and a variety of workshops to help you decrease stress and develop mindful awareness practices. I will continue to offer relevant and interesting opportunities to the community in 2019, as well as continue to teach in corporations, research settings and to private groups.
MINDFULNESS MEDITATION FOR THE REST OF US
For many of us, the word meditation conjures up images of sitting in lotus pose, emptying our minds of thoughts and levitating. This notion discourages us from trying this ancient art of paying attention, which has been scientifically proven to have physical and emotional benefits. Mindfulness meditation is simply being with what is.
Join us at Radiance Yoga located at 1 West Main Street in Wickford, RI on May 11 from 1 to 3 pm to explore this way of being. You’ll learn the basics and get the opportunity to try a short practice as well as have the opportunity to ask questions. The workshop cost is $25.
This workshop is for beginners and those who have tried meditation but have gotten discouraged or have questions.
21-DAY MINDFULNESS CHALLENGE
Practicing mindfulness can help with stress and anxiety, cultivate attention and focus, and boost the immune system. But so often we “forget” to be mindful and when we do we lose the opportunity to find more joy and well-being in our lives. What if we were “reminded” to be mindful? What type of effect would that have on our lives?
Priscilla Szneke invites you to join her for a 21-Day Mindfulness Challenge. Each week, over a four week period, we will meet to review a different mindfulness strategy with the intention to practice it everyday for the week. You will get a daily dose of mindfulness prompts directly into your inbox that will include instructions, reminders or suggestions to keep us on track. And we meet in community for encouragement and insight as well as teacher support to help you on your mindfulness journey.
You have the option for an afternoon or evening meeting time. This program is appropriate for anyone but may be especially useful for those who have completed an MBSR program or done mindfulness in the past and would like a refresher or reminders.

Sitting meditation, mindful movement, and loving kindness, are powerful for me. They help me focus and realize what is important and rather than focus on the negative, explore the positive, the possibilities. D.E.O – student 2015
