The main focus of the current session is to introduce you to the connection between your cognitive slip-ups (which you were asked to track in the prior week’s homework) and the emotional reactions you have to those slip-ups (i.e., “falls”, as in “slips and falls”). You will have a chance to discuss your experience with the homework and what you learned about the kinds of slip-ups you experience and how that is related to your mood. Building on this, you will learn about the hierarchy of attention, and how Focused Attention mindfulness can help you decrease slip-ups. You will also be introduced to the first of two Mindful Yoga series as another way to experience present-moment awareness, and as a complement to sitting meditation practice. Tracking pleasant events is also assigned for homework as a way to make the bridge between mindfulness practice and daily activities and life experiences.
