It is a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations and surrounding environment through a gentle, compassionate lens.

The course includes

Initial orientation to determine course suitability

Eight 2.5 hour Mindfulness Meditation classes

 CDs/Audio links + Workbook to support your practice
