Introduction to Mindfulness & Compassion Meditation
A 5-week, systematic introduction to mindfulness meditation and complementary compassion methods as a firm foundation for an ongoing practice and a good, engaged life.
While shorter than an MBSR course, many of the same fundamentals are introduced and explored in four 90-minute classes and a four-hour retreat, all online. These include:
How (and whether) to sit
Mindfulness of Breath
Mindfulness of the Body
Feeling the Tone of a Moment
The Power of the Pause
Mindfulness of Thoughts and Emotions
Stress and Resilience
Mindful Technology Use
A portion of proceeds from these classes are donated to Families for Justice as Healing, an organization of formerly incarcerated women working to end the incarceration of women and girls.
Offered in partnership with the Boston Center for Contemplative Practice.
August registration closed. Please indicate if you'd like notification when the course will run again in fall....

The Four Foundations of Mindfulness for Yoga Teachers
This systematic introduction to the Buddhist underpinnings of mindfulness is for yoga asana teachers who would like to bring mindfulness into their teaching appropriately, with confidence, and with understanding of its original lineage. (This workshop will also benefit any dedicated yoga asana practitioner.) In addition to didactic teaching, guided meditation, and Q&A, each class will include a yoga/mindfulness practice to demonstrate techniques for layering body-based and mindfulness methods. The first session includes an overview of the intersections of yoga and Buddhism.
In partnership with the Boston Center for Contemplative Practice.
