Mindfulness Meditation for Beginners
Saturday, February 15th from 10am - 1pm
“Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally.”~ Jon Kabat-Zinn.
This class will introduce the basic principles of mindfulness meditation with focus on mindfulness of breath, body, and thoughts. Meditation is a technique used to develop a awareness of what’s actually happening instead of being lost in the incessant chatter of our minds which leads to stress, anxiety, and other negative states. By learning to rest in the present moment, we can become less reactive to difficult experiences and cultivate more calm and ease. With a peaceful mind we feel a greater joy for life
