Part 3 of the Mindfulness series 

Mindfulness is the practice of being present to one’s experience with loving attention, which studies have shown helps reduce stress and promotes well‐being. In this class students will learn about the teaching of Loving Kindness and participate in guided meditations that help open the heart. This practice encourages us to be kind towards everyone, beginning with ourselves. Loving Kindness meditation helps to release negative emotions, such as shame, guilt, anger, fear and anxiety. If practiced regularly, this meditation leads to an increased sense of peace and happiness within oneself. A private and quiet space is recommended for participation in this class as well as a blanket or yoga mat, chair and loose‐fitting clothes.
