The Intersection of Mindfulness and Psychology
An 8-week group, Tuesdays 7:30pm – 9:30pm. Starting February 7.
Affordable sliding scale.
In this 8 wee class we’ll explore fundamental mindfulness practices and how to apply them to different aspects of our lives: conflicts, emotions, and dealing with change. This is the perfect introductory group for those who want to learn about meditation and mindfulness through a psychological lens. In the beginning of each group we will introduce a new meditation technique. We’ll then explore Buddhist and western therapeutic traditions in the second half. Sessions also include a brief process group for integrating the material together. Participants will be asked to practice the meditations they are learning at home.
