In this introductory Mindfulness course, we will be exploring the foundations of mindfulness and cultivating embodiment, non-judgement, and loving-kindness within the present moment. The course will include meditations, mindful movement, didactic talks, as well as group processes to deepen understanding of our shared wise heart and spacious mind. Led by Mindfulness Meditation Teacher-in-Training, Ari Pluznik, this course is a chance to develop a meditation practice and to connect on a deep level with our community!
