This three-part course is designed to explore mindfulness awareness and how it can be integrated into everyday life, even during times of crisis. Guided meditation and presented themes are intended to help participants establish a regular meditation practice.

Themes include:

  • Practicing gentleness and dropping the agenda
  • Steadying the mind and recovering some agency over our habitual reactions
  • Being present with our resistance and learning to give our full attention to the present moment

The course format will involve presentation of the material, a guided practice and time for group discussion. The course is intended to learn and practice mindfulness awareness skills but also to foster community at a time when social connection is more crucial than ever.

Participants can opt to join all three sessions, select which classes to attend. Information on how to join the online group will be e-mail after the registration process.
