Join us for our signature introductory course in mindfulness and meditation!
Mindfulness and meditation give us the skills and resources to cultivate a clear mind, a kind heart and the ability to transform reactivity to responsiveness and discernment, especially in challenging times.
Over the course of seven weeks, we'll explore mindfulness of the breath & body, thoughts & emotions, loving-kindness & ethics, and empathy & forgiveness from both secular mindfulness and Buddhist perspectives. Each class includes guided & silent meditation, in-depth practice discussion and some interactive practices.
