Using a variety of meditation practices, learn how to disengage the automatic pilot that influences your thought processes, training yourself to to pay full attention, on purpose, to the present , without judging. This enables you to live in the present moment, increasing awareness of your bodily sensations, thoughts, and feelings, so that you can manage them more effectively with a greater ability to relax and deal with stress.
