"If you ever wonder what's the big deal about mindfulness, you might remember this...Mindfulness (or vipassana meditation) is the technology for shifting from being ensnarled in suffering to being curious about it."  ~ Ruth King

Intro to Mindfulness Meditation  

Mondays 12:30-2:00pm

5 Weeks:  Jan. 8, 15, 22, 29 and Feb. 5, 2024

Middleton Senior Center (7448 Hubbard Ave)

Learning to live with awareness and acceptance of what is happening around and within us can free us from unnecessary worry, anxiety, and stress which adversely affects our mental and physical health. Mindfulness meditation gives us tools for living life with purpose and joy.

Meeting weekly for 90 minutes in a small group, we will explore the foundations and benefits of mindfulness meditation, focusing on learning through experience and self-reflection.  Students will be provided with an electronic workbook to print and will be encouraged to practice various forms of mindfulness at home between sessions. 

 

No experience is necessary, but a curious mindset is key!

Fee: $109

Register through Middleton Recreation Dept.

Register early - class size will be limited.
