Mindfulness & Meditation: Exploring old and new ways to get peace
Thursday, February 24, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:15 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Thursday, repeating until Thursday, June 23, 2022
This is an ongoing weekly class – review of core ideas and practices, introductions to new ideas & practices
This weekly course is for people who have taken Around Town DC’s Introduction to Mindfulness & Meditation course or a similar basic class and who want to sustain or build equanimity. Beginners are encouraged to take the intro course if they do not have any mindfulness and meditation practice.
Like constant gardeners, we cultivate our capacity to be with the most difficult questions in our lives, as well as our capacity to relax and be happy, despite everything. With the simple practices of mindfulness and meditation, we can experience increasing moments of calm that transform how we live each day. One breath is all that is required to experience healing. Many breaths, much healing.
