Class Details

Introducing the practices. Learn how meditation structurally changes the brain so we become less anxious and reactive; more present and patient.

Practicing self-compassion, working with the inner critic, turning the mind into more of an ally.

Taking the compassion practices into our relationships (of all sorts), practicing mindful listening and communicating.

Class 4, Sunday, 11/18: Habit Change for Optimal Living
Exploring how habits and addictions are formed, how they get hard-wired in the brain, and how to apply mindfulness practice for lasting change.
