A 6-Week Course

October 9 - November 13, 2017
Monday's 5:30pm to 6:30pm

The 2,500 year old practice of mindfulness meditation offers relevant benefits for our modern lives. These benefits can include feeling more calm, as well as being more self aware and resilient. Mindfulness teaches us to live in the present moment, with openness, curiosity, and kindness. Doing this, we can learn to step back from the pressures of our lives and ultimately experience a greater sense of well being and happiness.

This 6 week beginning course introduces simple tools for living a mindful life. Each week a new skill will be taught, practiced in classroom activities and then supplemented through assignments done at home.

Joining the Course:

Please arrive for the first session on Monday, October 9th at 5:30pm. It is important to commit to the entirety of the 6-week course for the cohesiveness of the group. There is also an invitation to join the Flagstaff Insight Meditation Community for a talk and group meditation that begins after class at 7:00.

See original announcement for more information.
