Introduction to Mindfulness

October 27, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm UTC+0

$125

Wednesday evenings: October 27, November 3, 10, 17, 2021; 6:30 – 8:00 PM Central
The suggested registration fee is $125, sliding scale rates available.

Held live via Zoom, this 4-week course explores what mindfulness is (and isn’t) through direct experience and discussion. Each week we will investigate a different aspect of mindfulness and its implications for your life.

The intention is to provide a safe space to try mindfulness and share your experience with others in the class. Are you doing it “right”? The only way to find out is to try, ask lots of questions, and hear from others how normal your perceived challenges are—and how easy it is to address them!
This course intersperses teacher presentations with meditations and experiential or reflective exercises. Each week, we invite participants to discuss their experiences in small groups and the class as a whole. While we offer self-reflective options, you might be more comfortable in class if you are open to sharing with other participants.

We’ll provide access to recorded guided meditations for use between classes.

Who This Class is For
This is a great class for adults (18 and older) who are interested in exploring what mindfulness is and how to start practicing it. It is especially useful for anyone who is looking for ways to address stress and daily anxiety or who wants to be more present, less reactive, and more open in their life.

Outcomes
By the end of class, you will know, through your own experience as well as exposure to the research evidence the benefits that mindfulness could offer you personally. Most importantly, you will have the ability to practice mindfulness on your own, both as you practice at home and in daily life

Instruction
Center courses and workshops are facilitated by our experienced instructors, who have deep experience in teaching mindfulness and meditation courses, workshops, and retreats.
