True peace of mind isn’t something you can buy or accumulate, but it is something you can learn to recognize and connect with from moment to moment.
Mindfulness meditation, the practice of bringing your attention to the present moment and then sustaining that attention, has been proven to support a number of benefits, including reduced stress, greater focus, better sleep, and a general sense of connection, meaning, and deep well-being
Learn foundational mindfulness meditation practices for connecting with breath and body along with key concepts for establishing and deepening a meditation practice.
All classes will be recorded and the audio made available for streaming/download. That way if you miss a class you can still follow along, and deepen your practice.

Emotions are meant to connect and protect us: connect us with the people and situations that support our personal growth and flourishing, and to protect us from relationships and difficulties that compromise or threaten our safety, health, and growth.
Similarly, our ability to plan, reflect, and discern -- to think -- is intended to help us manage complex difficulties and social interactions. Thinking is intended to aid our decision making -- to help us avoid stress and conflict.
Yet so often the emotions and thoughts we experience leave us feeling stressed and conflicted!
Join me for this 6-week series, where we will explore mindfulness meditation practices and techniques for shifting our relationship with emotions and thoughts -- to one of response rather than reaction, to one of balance and ease rather than overwhelm.

Experienced meditators will tell you, the skill of meditation is not something easily accomplished by reading a book. Meditation is simple but subtle and asks us to patiently re-train our bodies and minds in peace and simplicity so that we can experience the benefits of greater relaxation, lower stress, increased clarity and general well-being.
This "gold standard" course will introduce you step by step to the practice of mindfulness. You will learn fundamental meditation techniques including the body scan, mindfulness of breathing, walking meditation and more.
