Meditation has been shown to have numerous benefits, including reducing stress, anxiety, pain, blood pressure, stroke and heart attack risk, age-related brain deterioration and more. It has also been shown to increase emotional regulation, resilience, self-control, memory and learning.

We offer seated meditation classes which elicit the relaxation response through relaxed, focused breathing. We also offer moving meditation classes such as Qigong and Tai Chi, which increase mental and physical awareness and energy while also being deeply relaxing.

Mindfulness Meditation has been shown to have numerous benefits including:

  • Decrease stress and improve resilience
  • Lower blood pressure, stroke and heart attack risk
  • Drastically decrease physical and emotional pain
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Treat depression and anxiety
  • Decrease age-related brain deterioration
  • Improve self-control, memory, learning and more!

The Mindfulness Meditation Initiative
This program is designed to teach participants how to practice Mindfulness Meditation as well as how to tailor the practice to fit into their busy lives. This is a 10-week course which will cover 4 types of Mindfulness Meditation.

Classes are offered Monday through Friday at various times throughout the day. Each thirty-minute class will include a guided meditation as well as discussion of the intent of meditation, tips for practice and Q&A. No need to sit on the floor – chairs will be provided!

Participants are asked to attend at least two classes each week, but are invited to attend as many as
they want! Attendance to only one class is needed for the first and last week of the course. If you are unable to attend the same class each week – no problem! This course is designed to be flexible. Attend whichever classes work for you. Each week will cover a different theme. So, although the content of the classes throughout the week may vary slightly depending on the questions and comments presented by participants, each week of classes will have the same focus.
