If you have been looking for a routine to improve your ability to manage stress, feel more connected, or get your morning started with an exercise to improve focus, join your community to practice mindfulness.

Mindfulness meditation is a secular exercise where you pay attention to the present moment by focusing on breath, sound, body sensations and other focal points.

Research has shown that regularly exercising mindfulness may:

  • Increase feelings of connection and empathy towards others
  • Improve memory
  • Improve ability to fall asleep more quickly
  • Improve focus and attention
  • Decrease emotional reactivity

In the training you will practice different forms of mindfulness exercises in each class including:

  • Mindfulness meditations
  • Loving-kindness meditations
  • Gratitude practices
  • Self-compassion practices

Your Facilitator:
