What we're about
urban mindfulness meditation zurich offers a variety of educational and practical classes, workshops and courses designed to help you manage stress and to increase your health and well-being.
All courses are grounded in brain science, positive psychology and contemplative training and teach meditation in a secular, non-religious manner.
The purpose of this group is to create a warm, safe and trustful space where we learn, exchange ideas, meditate, reflect and explore life's questions. We are a fast growing community of people interested in cultivating happiness, peace and wisdom in our daily lives.

Mindfulness is an integrative, mind-body approach to life that helps people relate effectively to their experience. It involves paying attention to our own subjective thoughts, feelings and body sensations, in a way that can increase awareness, help us manage difficult experience and increase space to make wise choices. Recently this approach entered into the mainstream culture. A “Google” search on “mindfulness” results in millions of hits, and mindfulness based therapies are growing in popularity, with teachers and programs all around the globe.
