This class introduces you to the foundations of mindfulness if you are new to meditation, and deepens your practice if you already have one. In this four-week class, we will cultivate an intentional meditation practice of deepening our attentiveness to and care for our full selves and the world around us.
Through mindful movement practices such as qigong, tai chi, and walking meditation, we will have the opportunity to experience movement that supports health and healing for the mind, body, and spirit. Meditative movement focuses on proper breathing techniques and slow, gentle rocking and stretching movements designed to improve our general health and wellbeing. It is our hope that mindful movement will be fun and will create a supportive community while improving health, peace of mind, and enjoyment.
Journaling invites us to delve into our lives through written observations, the narratives we develop, and the awareness of our own role and perspective as we write. When combined with the practice of mindfulness, the gifts of discovery increase.
