Beginning Mindfulness Meditation

Waking up to the present moment

Many of us live with chronic stress and dissatisfaction, finding it difficult to experience peace and ease on a daily basis.  Mindfulness meditation is a practice for reducing stress and increasing one's sense of well being. These and many other benefits, experienced by millions over the centuries, are now confirmed by modern science.

This course is designed for beginners.  It is also appropriate for anyone wanting to establish or re-establish a meditation practice.   If you have had trouble being consistent in meditation, taking a class can be a good way to energize and re-dedicate yourself. After the classes end, students are encouraged to attend a weekly meeting, offered at no cost, where they can ask questions and find support for maintaining their meditation practice.

Beginning Mindfulness Meditation meets once a week for four weeks.  Each meeting lasts 90 minutes and includes instruction, meditation practice, and time for Q & A.  Currently classes are hybrid, i.e. they are simultaneously taught in-person and on Zoom. 

You will receive a confirmation email within 2 business days.  Prior to the first class, you will receive class information and materials.
