Mindfulness-Awareness Workshop Series

Mindfulness practice brings us back to the here and now and helps us to not get caught up in the storylines in our heads about the past and future.

Offered three times a year since September 2010, this eight-session weekly course (2.5 hour sessions) is for people who are new to mindfulness as well as those who would like to deepen their practice and study. Modules include:

- Introduction to Mindfulness
- Being Present
- Making Friends with Ourselves
- Working with Negativity
- Opening to the World
- Mindfulness in Everyday Life
