An Introduction to Buddhist Mindfulness Meditation

A calm and concentrated awareness of the body and mind in the present moment: this is a fundamental element of Buddhist mindfulness meditation. Cultivating mindful awareness of each and every experience in the present moment increases our receptivity to all aspects of life, deepens our understanding of ourselves and teaches us how to live with less anxiety and greater happiness.

Join us for four sessions, each covering a different aspect of Buddhist mindfulness meditation: mindfulness of breathing, compassion meditation, full body awareness and mindfulness of thoughts and feelings. Meditation periods will run from 20 to 35 minutes each and combine instructions on the practice of mindfulness meditation with practical advice on how to apply mindfulness to all aspects of our daily life.

This course on mindfulness meditation is not a substitute for specialized counseling, as required.
