Rational Mindfulness Group

Life can be so stressful—it really helps to learn and practice evidence-based techniques to manage stress and to become more compassionate. Especially for non-believers, it is important to do so in a science-friendly, rational atmosphere.

The Rational Mindfulness Group supports secular people in using scientifically-informed mindfulness and meditation practices to reduce stress, sharpen thinking, calm emotions, and enhance compassion. Our meetings combine various types of meditation, yoga (stretching), readings, and discussions. It’s a great place for both those who want to learn how to meditate and become more mindful, and for those with some experience who want to try out new techniques and meet like-minded folks.

For more information on rational, evidence-based mindfulness, see the webpage of the Humanist Mindfulness Group at the Humanist Community at Harvard.  (http://harvardhumanist.org/harvard/humanist-mindfulness-group/)

    I don't think I'm going to be able to make it after all. I'm just not feeling well right now. I apologize for bailing out at the last minute.

    If I'm going to get a lift from Project Mainstream I need to know when to arrive and when the meeting will be over.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
