Each of the weekly sessions will incorporate guided practices, a presentation talk based on the theme and its link to the practice of mindfulness. The session will bring together others who have similar interests based on the topic, along with new connections and shared experiences.

Come as you are, and be comfortable. Some of our students may be in business attire, and others in workout clothes.
Class is experiential and includes some teaching, as well as practices with discussion. No one is pressured to speak.
We recommend that you arrive 5 minutes before class starts. If you are going to arrive late, that is fine, but it is best to be on time to be respectful of the group. We all understand that sometimes things happen beyond our control, however, and we would rather have you come late than not at all.
