Meditation/mindfulness is a tool, a skilled practice, that will help you find greater joy and peace in your life, and an easier and more healthful way to live in your body at this moment, with whatever challenges you are facing. The qualities of awareness that you cultivate in meditation have the potential to run through all avenues of your life: eating a meal, driving a car, being with family and friends, or riding the waves of strong or difficult emotions.
In our four-week exploration of meditation/mindfulness we will try different techniques and traditions to allow us to fashion a personal practice suited to your needs and personality. Hopefully, this will be a practice that you can make a part of your daily life; a practice that will help you find greater joy, peace, health and ease in your life.
