INTRODUCTION to Mindfulness MEDITATION & STRESS REDUCTION
A special opportunity to become familiar with the time-tested, relaxing & restorative qualities of Mindfulness Meditation. We'll explore how meditation helps lower stress levels, and be more balanced and healthy. We know that many folks are often intimidated by the thought of sitting still for long periods of time. So we’ll first explore gentle flowing movements that release tension, to prepare for meditation. As weeks progress, instructions will cover meditation while sitting, kneeling, standing & walking. Each class includes deep relaxation in the reclining posture. Jon will also offer short talks which include a relaxed blend of Applied Mindfulness—a secular approach to teaching meditation similar to Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), and some traditional teachings from the path to enlightenment. This series is primarily for those new to meditation and/or want to reduce stress, but all are welcome to come and practice. Props such as chairs, sitting cushions, blankets and eye masks will be provided.
