A 4-week class offered by Andrea Starn, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist via Zoom

Awakening to Mindfulness is based on the principles of Insight, or Mindfulness, meditation. Participants will learn the foundations of mindfulness, develop a meditation practice, and apply the many benefits of mindfulness to daily life. We will cover ways to work skillfully with thoughts, emotions, and sensations; and deepen our awareness of the ever-changing nature of present-moment experience. This series is designed for beginners but is also suitable for those with experience who want to refine their practice. Classes include instruction, guided meditation practice, and discussion.
