Mindfulness Meditation Workshop

Mindfulness meditation is not a mere exercise or technique—it is a particular way of being with oneself and one’s mind. Although originally developed within the Buddhist tradition and still an integral part of it, no particular faith is required to practice it. Mindfulness meditation is a means of connecting with oneself, one’s body and mind, on a deeper level. It is a practice of clear vision. It is a path of self-discovery. Mindful meditation will meet the following dates from 12:30 - 1:30 pm: Apr 5 & 12.
