Meditation seems to be mentioned everywhere these days and is compared to another thing you “should” do....like going to the gym.  But it’s actually one of THE most important things we can do to live our lives with more clarity, meaning, compassion and joy.  When we meditate and do these simple practices, we are connecting to ourselves, which is a true act of self caring. We connect all day to those around us....but do we value and connect with ourselves every day?

This 8 week class is structured to begin and sustain a mindfulness and meditation practice in a supportive, small group environment. Class size is limited to 8 people. The course follows Jon Kabat-Zinn's Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction curriculum (MBSR) which is used in hundreds of clinical trials and studies to show the benefits of meditation and mindfulness practices, and is considered the "gold standard" of Mindfulness instruction.

Extensive research has shown the MBSR 8 Week course to be helpful for anxiety, chronic pain, depression, high blood pressure, digestive issues, sleep disorders, and weight management.

During this course, participants will learn how to....

  • Establish a meditation practice
  • ​Integrate mindfulness into everyday life
  • ​Increase self-compassion and compassion for others
  • Increase ability to relax while resting in the present moment
  • Improve ability to cope with stressful situations
  • Improve communication with friends, family and at work
  • Release tensions and increase energy
  • Learn how to relate to and process emotions in a healthy way
  • ​Cultivate skills in being present to bring more clarity, meaning, compassion and joy into everyday life
