Continuing Education

Mindfulness is the art and science of paying attention, of listening to ourselves and the world around us, of learning "to be intimate with all things" as Zen master Dogen put it. Meditation can help you feel, sleep and cope better while improving self-esteem and renewing enthusiasm for one’s personal and work life. You will learn to cultivate non-judgmental awareness in day-to-day life and develop the potential to experience each moment - no matter how difficult - with greater serenity and clarity. Appropriate for those who are learning meditation for the first time, or wish to continue to develop their skills.

This is an 8 week class starting Tuesday, January 23 through March 13, 2018. Class Times are 6:30pm - 8:30pm with an all day retreat scheduled on Saturday March 3, 9:30am - 4:30pm Instructor: Eliza Carlson, LMHC, CN (22 CEUs)
