This 6-week introductory training in mindfulness course is an opportunity to learn the foundations of mindfulness in a safe, fun, nurturing environment. In each session, we will explore the teachings together through guided meditation, mindfulness talks, open dialogue, and discussion. The invitation is to learn practical ways to integrate mindfulness into all areas of your life and begin to see benefits in communication, relationships, work, and daily activities. Compassion will be the common thread throughout the course as we learn to meet each moment with more presence, kindness, curiosity, and acceptance. The teachings will be offered in a secular, light-hearted approach as we explore the nature of human experience together. Regardless of experience or background, you are welcome in this class.
