Introduction to Mindfulness for Beginners
Awaken the Heart & Mind
Welcome to the virtual community of Mindfulness Meditation
We live in an increasingly complex world and in times of both challenge and hope, it has never been more important to find ways to rediscover something deep, meaningful, and essential within ourselves. Unleash the space within us to slow down, connect with some calm, stillness, and deepen a sense of inner refuge while we cultivate a consistent practice together.
Mindfulness comprises, not only awareness of the present but in all aspects of the human experience. I will guide you through this transformative practice. We will explore the fundamentals of Mindfulness Meditation and its psychological process, understanding the science and art behind the practice. Each week's session is meticulously crafted for you to learn and cultivate mindfulness meditation with openness, kind awareness, and compassion.
Together, we will explore the supports to awaken our heart and mind, bringing in mindful loving awareness to our moment to moment experience and learn to cultivate resilience as we grow in awareness of love and wisdom.
Awaken the Heart & Mind mindfulness meditation is brought to you to honor our common humanity. It is my conscious intention to create a heart-mind place that operates from a space of giving and receiving, a donation-based class to create an opportunity for people to pay it forward and anchor our practice of compassion and gratitude. I give not because I have plenty, but because I know how it feels without. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. This class is open to all walks of life and no prior meditation experience necessary. I will be leading the class with occasional special guest teachers from around the world.
