We have a fine and invigorating set of mindfulness meditation classes to choose from this Spring, featuring our all-new Mindful Fitness class taught by fitness trainer and veteran Zen meditator Gentoku McCree. Our wonderful MBSR and Intro to Mindfulness classes are also once again available. Go to our website classes page to register!
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)
This 8-week class was originated by Jon Kabat-Zinn and is supported by 30 years of research. Mindfulness is a way to bring vibrancy to our lives. MBSR can also be a powerful adjunct to therapy or medical treatment, and has proven beneficial for chronic pain, various health conditions, or just simply “living the full catastrophe.”
Orientation: (free, required for MBSR) Wednesday April 10th
$350 by April 12th, $400 after April 13th
Introduction to Mindfulness Meditation
This four-week class is perfect for absolute beginners, or a wonderful refresher, even if you have a longstanding mindfulness meditation practice. We will explore many tools of mindfulness.
Mondays April 1, 8, 15, 22
6:30 – 8:00 p.m.
Instructor: PMT staff, TBA.
$100 early registration, $120 after March 25th
Mindful Fitness – New Class!
All diets and exercise plans work for a little while, because they all have one thing in common. They make us pay attention. But most diets and exercise plans fail because they don’t focus on the fundamental factor of awareness. The purpose of this class is to support deep and fundamental transformation. You will learn what it takes to shed this heavy skin you’ve been wearing and become more of who you already are, but with more ease, peace, and joy.
Thursdays April 4, 11, 18, 25
6:30 – 8:00 p.m.
Instructor: Gentoku McCree
$100 early registration, $120 after March 29th
By popular demand, a regular opportunity to come practice the tools of mindfulness. This is a wonderful way to support an ongoing (but maybe flagging) home practice. Of course, we are all beginners, so everyone is welcome.
