"The sessions and the background provided help me reflect much better on how we need to take time to think and be mindful in a world where mindfulness is increasingly both important and being lost."

Learn to Meditate
Seven Wednesdays, Jan 23 - Mar 6, 2019
The new year is a great time to commit or recommit to self-care and to taking time for reflection, or developing habits that can lead to letting go of stress and being more present. This series will introduce you to the fundamentals of mindfulness meditation in a friendly, supportive atmosphere -- and will support you as you develop new habits. If you're new to meditation practice, or would like a refresher, start here.
Seven Thursdays, Jan 24 - Mar 7, 2019
Our minds get entrenched in self-centered views and ways of thinking. We're less adventurous than we believe ourselves to be, failing to notice that we aren't taking risks in our thinking. With mindfulness practice, we can start working on this right where we are, by developing an open and curious approach to our lives. This class is based on traditional methods and techniques used to train the mind to break out of entrenched mental habits.
