Mindfulness Meditation is the practice of peaceful-abiding. It is a practice that helps us cultivate strength, clarity, and peace of mind regardless of what circumstances life may be throwing our way. Rather than be tossed around by the inevitable ups and downs of life, we can learn how to show up fully for our lives with patience, appreciation, and even a sense of humor! True peace is the absence of struggling with ourselves and with our experience. Mindfulness Meditation helps us untangle ourselves from the habit of struggle and helps us learn how to be fully present for our lives.
This beginner-friendly series will be a thorough introduction to Mindfulness Meditation. It will help you learn how to establish a basic daily practice of your own (with plenty of support from your instructors), help you understand how to apply mindfulness to your daily life, and help you feel more centered, open, and clear which contributes to a healthy sense of well-being.
The course will be led by two senior certified Metrowest Yoga teachers, Rebecca and Molly, who will provide meditation instructions, guide you through each practice, provide ongoing support, with plenty of time for Q & A and open discussion.
