New to Practice: Introduction to Mindfulness Meditation series – Wednesdays to December 16

This is a 6-week introduction to the practice of Mindfulness Meditation. We will focus on developing mindfulness through the regular practice of meditation and also informally, by bringing mindfulness into daily life.

Students will learn and practice fundamental meditations with a focus on the breath, body, feeling tones, thoughts, and emotions. The sessions will include discussion about the Four Noble Truths, the Four Foundations of Mindfulness, the common obstacles to meditation, and wholesome mind states like loving-kindness and compassion.

Please register by emailing Bill Culman. Drop-ins are also welcome to join. This course is good for beginning meditators, continuing meditators, and anyone who wants to practice mindfulness meditation.
