New 8-Week Series!
MINDFULNESS-BASED STRESS REDUCTION** with Sunada Takagi
Wednesdays, March 22 - May 10, 7:15-9:30pm,
plus one all-day class on Sunday, April 30, 9-4
Mindfulness isn’t so much a tool or technique, but a different way of being. When we pay attention to our present moments, we start to see ourselves and our world more clearly. Instead of being driven by worry, anxiety, or feeling pressured, we begin to choose our responses more wisely. We find our way to a more balanced and centered life, guided by our inner strengths and values rather than old habits and reactions. This 8-week series is a thorough introduction to the art of mindfulness. It’s based on Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn's pioneering work in mind-body medicine originated at the UMass Medical Center. Sliding scale, $300-600 preregistration with Sunada required
