If you’re new to meditation, Mindfulness for Beginners is a great introduction to mindful meditation. If meditation is a part of your life already, the workshop can help you focus your practice for the upcoming year.

This immersive mindfulness seminar will teach accessible, data-driven ways to mitigate stress and promote mental strength and focus. The curriculum covers the historical evolution of mindfulness, the research-backed health benefits of mindfulness practice, and the study of the pillars of mindfulness in a supportive, instructor-led environment.

Each student will leave with meditation tips and tricks, inspiration for daily practice, and a cited course workbook for referral.
