Mindfulness Meditation


Adult Enrichment / Health & Wellness -
Fall 2022

Become a presence of healing, wisdom, and loving-kindness for yourself and others through the practice of mindfulness. Mindfulness is the ability to pay attention to feelings, thoughts, and our physical sense experiences without judgment. We let them arise and go without holding on to or fighting them. Mindfulness makes it easier to release unhealthy patterns of thought and behavior, allowing us to respond to situations, other people, and ourselves with skill, compassion, and wisdom. Equanimity develops, and we can stop chasing after pleasure and running from pain. Clinical studies have shown that the practice of mindfulness can reduce stress, anxiety, pain, depression, insomnia, and high blood pressure. This class is an opportunity to practice the meditation and learn about Buddhist psychology in a supportive group. The course will not cover the Buddhist religion.
