This course is designed for beginners. It is also appropriate for anyone wanting to refresh their understanding of Mindfulness or re-establish their 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. In this course we will learn to work with body, mind, thoughts, and emotions.
There is a suggested donation of $60, which covers all four classes. This is a suggested donation, and participants are free to offer any amount.
After the class, a weekly follow-up meeting will be offered at no cost to answer questions and help you maintain a regular practice.
Two sections of this class are offered. The content is the same. The only difference is location, date, and time. Should you miss a particular class, you may be able to make it up by attending the other section. Please speak to me about this.
