Yep! Although the skills taught build on each other, you can get a lot out of group no matter when you sign up.
We learn by talking to each other, learning about mindfulness, and practicing together. These three pillars - practicing, listening, and building community - provide a supportive environment for learning a simple, but challenging, skill. Each week, we learn about, try, and reflect on a different kind of meditation practice. The goal is to leave the group with a sense of how meditation might work in YOUR life, and the experience necessary to keep your practice going in a way that works for you.
Kind of. Meditation practice doesn't work very well if you only do it once a week, so the facilitator will suggest ways you can practice at home.
This group is divided into 5 modules, each with two sessions:
(1) Calming Down: Calming Down the Body & Calming Down the Mind
(2) Tuning In: Mindfulness of Body & Mindfulness of Sound
(3) Letting Be: Allowing Thoughts & Allowing Feelings
(4) Taking Care: Care for Self & Care for Others
(5) Waking Up: Expanding Awareness & Being the Space
A private, quiet place; a good internet connection; a straight-backed chair or meditation cushion (optional); a meditation app (see flyer for options); pillows and blankets (optional)
