Mindfulness. An Eight-Week Plan

Join Becky and Christy for an 8-week Mindfulness class.  Our next courses will begin Wed February 1st, 5:15 - 6:30 or Thursday February 2nd, 1:15 - 2:30.  Space is limited. 

What are some of the benefits of mindfulness meditation?
--Anxiety, depression and irritability all decrease with regular sessions of meditation.  Memory improves, reactions times become faster and mental and physical stamina increase.
--Regular meditators enjoy better and more fulfilling relationships
--Studies worldwide have found that meditation reduces the key indicators of chronic stress, including hypertension.
--Meditation has always been found to be effective in reducing the impact of serious conditions, such as chronic pain and can even help to relieve drug and alcohol dependence.
--Studies have now shown that meditation bolsters the immune system and thus helps to fight off colds, flu and other diseases.  --Mark Williams and Danny Penman, Mindfulness, An eightweek plan for Finding Peace in a Frantic World.
