We will emphasize mindfulness (a focus on now) with some interest in meditation (a focus on breath.) Mindfulness meditation opens a door to greater appreciation of life in the moment. It can be helpful for really tasting your dessert, for accepting yourself as you are, or for living with sadness and worry. Or for getting to sleep.
Beginners and experienced meditators are welcome.
