    This course will include an in-depth exploration of mindfulness of the body as a path toward calm and connection to ourselves and others. Much more than just a relaxation technique, mindfulness gives us a new way to realate to all of our experience, with kindness, with interst and without judgement. With mindfulness, we can step out of habitual reactions and find new ways to respond to ourselves and others. Each class will include guided mediation practice, teaching, and Q&A, as well as optional homework. The class consists of four sessions on April 3 and 17 and May 1 and 15. It is reccommended , though not required to attend all of the sessions. You must register for each session indivisually.
