Fall 2018: Mindfulness Renewal
Thu. Oct 18, 2018 - Thu. Nov 8, 2018 (4 weeks)
Every Thursday from 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM
If you’d like to renew or begin a personal practice of mindfulness, this four-week course is designed to support you in starting again or in deepening your current practice. With the support and inspiration of a class, we’ll revisit mindfulness practices – awareness of breath, sensation, thought and emotion, simple mindful movement, body scan, and the cultivation of kindness. Discussions will focus on attitudes and routines that support ongoing practice, including how awareness can be cultivated informally throughout the day. This course is designed for those who have completed the 8-week MBSR course.
