Beginning Mindfulness Meditation – Marguerite Stanciu, Center for Faith and Vocation
Nov. 7th, 14th, 28th, & Dec. 5th - 9:00 am - 10:00 am ET, In person
Mindfulness meditation calms the mind and awakens the heart and helps us to encounter life circumstances with greater confidence. Meditation connects us with our overall wellness by harmonizing mind and body, working with our anxiety and building resilience, resulting in more aliveness and appreciation for ourselves, others and the world in which we live. Many faith and philosophical traditions include various meditation and prayer practices and while mindfulness meditation is rooted in the Buddhist tradition, here it is presented as a secular practice.
Participants will learn about the history of mindfulness meditation, receive instruction in the practices and meditate together as meditating in community helps to develop a regular meditation practice and is an opportunity to learn about and to share experiences in connection with mindfulness.
