Mindfulness Meditation Classes

With Paddy Kennedy, Certified Mindfulness Teacher/Coach/Trainer

(A 10-week Meditation Program for Beginner and Intermediate Meditators)

About this course

This is a 10-week program for people who would like to learn to manage stress and how to meditate. Mindfulness, which finds its roots in Ancient Buddhism, is NOT a religion but is rather a practice for all of us to find inner peace and increase physical and mental energy, to help us sleep better, to deal with our fear and anger, to help us raise our level of self-confidence and heal depression, to help manage chronic pain and maintaining a healthy heart. Mindfulness lets us live in the present moment, thereby alleviating a lot of every day worries and concerns. It contributes generally to improved physical, emotional, and mental health.
Every session involves a meditation.
