Mindfulness is a common buzzword these days, but what does it actually mean, and how can mindfulness help us in daily life?
In this five-week in-person course we will delve into the main principles of mindfulness, experience an accessible meditation practice, and receive guidance for cultivating a meditation practice on your own. We will also explore ways that mindfulness helps to decrease stress, improve one's ability to be present and engaged, be more compassionate, maintain emotional regulation, and make skillful choices.
This class takes a secular approach to mindfulness, and everyone is welcome.
