Mindfulness Meditation

What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is an ordinary experience: consciously waking up~ to what is present, here and now. Waking up to our lives as they are can seem extraordinary, yet it is an ordinary quality of our shared humanity. With Mindfulness we can cultivate resilience, freedom, curiosity, joy, and compassion as a result of a life lived with intention.

2017 Fall MBSR

The MBSR program is a way of integrating the Spiritual Practice of Mindfulness into daily life: learning to walk a contemplative path with practical feet. We learn to pay attention on purpose in the present moment, without judgment, to life as it is. Research has shown MBSR supports health enhancement, and emotional resilience.
