 Mindfulness Meditation - Start Here

Mindfulness meditation, or insight mindfulness, is a living practice of learning how to meet each moment fully. This is a loving and courageous way of life based on being present with experience as it comes and goes, with steady attentiveness and balance. When we live in THIS moment (which is the only one we actually have) our life becomes infinitely richer.

While contemplative practices are part of spiritual traditions across all cultures, today mindfulness meditation is a creative part of Western psychology, philosophy and many other disciplines. Mindfulness meditation has been the subject of much exciting scientific research in the last 30 years, and has been proven to help people better manage stress, fear, anger, anxiety, and depression both at home and in the workplace.

 
Class Structure

The Mindfulness-Meditation class is training to empower participants to take an active role in the management of their health and wellness. The class meets weekly for 1 hour every Tuesday evening  . Participants are asked to practice mindfulness meditation and/or mindful movement for 30-45 minutes a day.  An intensive teacher-participant relationship helps the participant integrate the teaching into her or his specific life situations and so really make the practice his or her own.

When we take time to connect to ourselves, we, too, have so much more to give! To ourselves, to those we love, and to our world.

The mind is a superb instrument if used rightly. Used wrongly, however, it becomes very destructive. To put it more accurately, it is not so much that you use your mind wrongly — you usually don’t use it at all. It uses you. This is the disease. You believe that you are your mind. This is the delusion. The instrument has taken you over.
