We also offer a variety of Mindful Movement classes - yoga, qigong, and more.
Mindfulness meditation may be relaxing, but it is not a "relaxation technique." There are methods which are utilized to nurture stabilizing (not controlling) the mind - but the techniques or methods aren't themselves "mindfulness." If you come to the group a few times, you'll start to know what this means!
This is a time when we meditate together & discuss mindfulness concepts and the "inner space" of our own meditation experiences. Please come w/ beginner's mind! We also read & discuss a book together - in 2016, we'll be getting into Larry Rosenberg's 3 steps to Awakening. (Please come whether you are reading the book or not!)
We also regularly schedule 8-week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction classes. This class is affordable & may very well be life-changing.
If you feel depressed, anxious or stressed, we can teach you to be in a new relationship with your mind, one that will support happiness and equanimity.
