Mindfulness as a word, idea, and practice, has never been more visible in our culture. However, the fundamental tenets of mindfulness are often misunderstood as “just another self-help technique”, or “touchy feely therapy.” This program will explore the historical foundations of mindfulness, the practice of meditation, and the practical tools with which we can bring mindfulness to our everyday lives, relationships, and challenges. Our morning will consist of some lecture, dialogue, and exercises that explore the nature of awareness, and how we perceive and engage with one another and the world. Fee: $25
