8 MONDAY EVENINGS
7:00 PM – 9:00 PM EDT
APRIL 19 – JUNE 14 No class on Memorial Day
WITH DR. MARK BERGER
The practice of mindfulness is not something you can accomplish just reading about it. And meditating with free apps is great until you realize you’re ready for something more substantial. This is the value of a structured weekly course thoughtfully designed to guide you in understanding how mindfulness works – helping you establish a strong personal practice.
Meditation is simple in essence, but it’s also subtle. It asks us to patiently re-train our bodies and minds in peace and simplicity so that we can experience the benefits of greater relaxation, lower stress, increased clarity and general well-being.
This course will introduce you step by step to the practice of mindfulness. You will learn fundamental meditation techniques including the body scan, mindfulness of breathing, walking meditation and more.
- Understanding what meditation is and how it works
- The Scientific Research into its Benefits
- How and why to establish a daily practice
- How to relax mind and body
- Training in attention and awareness
- Mindfulness of Breathing and sense perceptions
- Common challenges and remedies
- Mindfulness in daily life
Each weekly meeting includes guided meditation, talks, and discussion. The class format is set up to provide opportunity for personal guidance and for sharing experiences with others in the class. If you’re relatively new to meditation, this is the place to start.
Research has shown that people have greater success when they integrate the learning from a weekly course with a dedicated session of guided practice. For this reason we offer the Mindfulness Mini-Retreat “Practicing Nowness: A Morning of Guided Mindfulness Meditation” on Sunday May 23rd as a Companion to this course. Registration for the Mini-Retreat is separate.
