Mind Training
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.
