What is mindfulness meditation? How can mindfulness meditation benefit your everyday life?

Join us for this 4-week Mindfulness meditation class. It’s open to everyone, whether you are new to meditation or experienced. Mindfulness meditation is easy to learn and do. But don’t let the ease fool you – it’s a powerful technique for relieving stress, learning to relax, and training your brain to reduce anxiety and increase focus. Whether you want to learn to live more in the present or better deal with the stress of everyday life, this class series will teach effective techniques for improving your life skills and mindset.

Each week we will talk about how to apply what you are learning, and we will spend time in actual meditation during the session. Here are some of the topics we will cover:
  • What mindfulness meditation is
  • How to meditate
  • How mindfulness meditation is similar to, and different from, other forms of meditation and yoga
  • Research on the effects of mindfulness meditation on the brain and body
  • The easiest and best ways to incorporate mindfulness meditation into your own health and awareness routines
  • How to use Mindfulness meditation to deal with anxiety, stress, life improvement, and coping with illness and/or pain.

Each session is an opportunity to learn something new and de-stress. The sessions build on one another, so it is best if you can attend all 4, but we can catch you up if you need to miss one or two.

When the 4 sessions are completed you will know how to practice mindfulness meditation on your own, and you will already feel the positive effects.

Please note, these classes are live-streamed online via zoom. The video is not available offline. The series includes access to PDF resource materials content and live-streamed classes.

What do you need for class?
  • Wear comfortable clothing. Yoga mats, meditation cushions or other aids are not necessary, but feel free to use them if you have them.
