    Will there be future courses on a day other than Thursday? I have a standing commitment on Thursdays but would be interested in this class if there are other options in the future.

      Hi Lisa, thanks for letting us know. There will be another one in about 3 weeks. Meanwhile, I am happy to speak with you if you are interested in the 8-week program starting on March 27th.

    This is an article that just came out today by Chade-Meng Tan, founder of the Search Inside Yourself program at Google, discussing the juicy benefits of mindfulness beyond performing better at work: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/chademeng-tan/mindfulness-the-juicy-stu_b_4978423.html

    I look forward to meeting all of you tomorrow. It's going to be an interesting exploration into your minds as you learn a little how your brain works and learn practices to rewire the brain for more ease, creativity, and awareness.

    Unfortunately, I have work that must be done in preparation for a presentation on Tuesday. Hopefully, I'll be able to attend the next meeting!

      No worries Mike. I am sure when the time is right we will meet. I hope it is not the 7 women who scared you away. There are other men coming just that they have not RSVPed here :)

    I'm open to attending the first meeting. Not sure if it's in-line with my interests. We'll see!

    • Shalini B.

      Hi Mike, I look forward to meeting with you and exploring possibilities.

    How much is each session?

    March 14

    • Paul

      I do not. But I do practice TM. I'll do whatever I can to help with stress and positive thinking. I am currently going through a divorce and looking for whatever I can to help me through this. Is there going to be a charge after the first set of sessions?

      March 14

    • Shalini B.

      I am sorry you are going through a divorce. I have been there and it is a challenging process no matter how amicable the separation is. I am happy you are seeking support in mindfulness. As to your question at this point I am offering three types of public gatherings - the free introductory classes, eight week mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) classes that have a fee but offer scholarships to people who can't afford it, and free follow up sessions for people who have taken the MBSR classes.

  • Michelle

    I'm not sure I'll be able to make THIS meet-up because I'm out of town for the month of March. But I'll be back in April, ready and raring to go!

    March 14

    • Shalini B.

      Welcome Michelle, I look forward to practicing with you in April :)

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
