Mindfulness is the skill and the art of becoming aware of our physical, emotional and mental experiences with curiosity and kindness. This highly experiential course provides a coherent structure for cultivating mindfulness and self-acceptance. Week by week, we will be learning how to bring awareness to body, breath, mind and heart. Participants will sample a variety of formal and informal meditations practices aimed at reducing stress and reactivity, and expanding a sense of space, freedom, and connection.
Each class will contain a mixture of guided meditation, inquiry and discussion, learning exercises and formal teaching.
In addition to the meditation and exercises that we do in class, students will be expected to practice at home for at least 30 minutes a day. Home practice is a vital component of the course and there will be space in each lesson for asking questions and receiving feedback about what’s unfolded during the week. (If you are not sure you have the time to commit to home practice, you may not want to do a mindfulness course at this time.)
Before being given a place on the course, potential students must have an in depth discussion with the instructor. This is a wonderful opportunity to ask questions, and to decide whether this course is going to provide a good fit at this moment in your life.
There are some sliding scale placements for students who are on a low income. Courses tend to fill up quickly. Please contact Andrea to express your interest.
