Meditation is generally practiced in a quiet environment and in a comfortable position. The mind isn’t forced into strict focus or becoming empty, simply paying attention to the focus of your meditation opens the gate to the experience.  As well as indoor sitting meditation, we will also explore walking and sitting meditations outdoors on nice evenings.  We will explore mindfulness, beach walk meditation, garden meditation, kindness meditation, mindful movement , mindful eating, mindful body scan,   and others.

In this program you will:

  • Learn mindfulness
  • Practice proper posture, practical breathing to ease stress and anxiety so that you can meditate.
  • Understand what mindfulness is and be able to practice on your own
