Mindfulness meditation is a simple approach to bringing awareness to our experience that has been practiced for thousands of years. Beginning with the focusing of attention on the breath, the practice concentrates and calms the mind. It allows one to see through the mind's conditioning and to live more fully in the present.

This series of six Monday evening classes introduces the practice of mindfulness meditation and gives an overview of helpful means of working with thoughts, difficult emotions, developing wisdom and deepening compassion. There will be guided and silent meditations, as well as time for sharing questions and insights about your practice of meditation.

Instructions are gradually expanded each week and p racticed during the week at home. Learn what mindfulness is – and practices for cultivating it. Understand the benefits of meditation and the practice of mindfulness. Develop skills to bring mindfulness into daily life and cultivate greater clarity and calm. This course is particularly suited to those who are new or relatively new to practices of meditation and mindfulness – as well as those who would like to deepen or renew their practice.
