Meditation in Everyday Life

Five Tuesday Evenings—7 to 9 PM
January 9th through February 6th

With simple instructions and support, mindfulness meditation practice can become part of your life, bringing greater stability, strength, and clarity.

While meditation has many benefits, establishing a consistent personal practice can be extremely challenging for both new and experienced meditators alike.

This five-week Mindfulness Meditation program is designed to help new meditators develop a regular practice and bring the benefits of mindfulness meditation to their daily lives. As we begin to practice on a regular basis, we learn to relax and simply be with whatever is going on in our lives. Over time, this meditation helps us to cultivate courage, humor, and stability in the face of daily complexities of jobs, relationships, and all aspects of daily life.

Meditation in Everyday Life combines technique and view in a setting of support and community to provide you with everything you need to build a healthy, strong meditation practice.

Give yourself the gift of meditation and infuse your life and the lives of those around you with compassion, caring, and kindness.
