Introduction to Mindfulness Meditation

Mindfulness meditation works by helping the practitioner achieve a better understanding of what is happening right now—whether positive, negative, or neutral—not what they want to happen or what think they should be happening. Recognizing that unconscious thoughts, feelings, and behaviors can undermine emotional, physical, and spiritual health, you will learn techniques to reduce stress and stress-related disorders.

The class will consist of a presentation, opportunity to participate in guided meditation and time for discussion, questions, and answers.

Instructor Jerry Hartman is a graduate of the certificate program of the Meditation Teacher Training Institute, in Washington, D.C.

Tuition: $59** (includes $40 in fees*)

Using Mindfulness Meditation to Increase Happiness

We often think happiness is dependent on external factors.

We suffer from the “if only” disease, looking for the next big thing that will finally make us happy.

Mindfulness meditation gives you tools to create lasting happiness that does not rely on others. Explore how clinging to your attitudes and possessions creates dissatisfaction and how loving, kindness, generosity, and gratitude can help alter your outlook on life.

Instructor: Jerry Hartman.
