Smarter Than Your Phone : Mindful Engagement with Technology

Saturday, March 10, 2018 - 10:00 am to 4:00 pm

More and more of our waking hours are spent checking and responding to technology, especially mobile devices. Pinging text messages, snapchats, buzzing notifications, all tap into our natural sense of FOMO Fear of Missing Out, our inborn attraction to potential rewards, and innate aversion to discomfort. 

While our devices offer a powerful benefit, they also can lead us unwittingly down paths of mindless habits that fail to serve our best interests. 

This experiential workshop explores the brain science and seductive power of technology. 

Practical mindfulness skills will be introduced to increase awareness of technology use, explore the personal tech cost/benefit, and bring mindful choice and intention into our relationship with technology. 

Lunch (vegetarian) is included
