“A true home is a place where you feel comfortable and at ease. You don’t want to go  anywhere else anymore. You feel so at home, so at ease. Have you found such a place?”

~ Thich Nhat Hanh

With this offering, we are creating a safe, inclusive, and welcoming place to explore Mindfulness and Self-Compassion. We are inviting you to bring your authentic self, even that  which lies beneath. Together we can hold a space for what happened in the past, for the  feelings we harbor, and move forward with wholeness and pride.

In this program, we will:  

  • Better understand what Mindfulness is and is not, both the science and the experiential  practices
  • Begin to consciously and systematically work with our own stress, pain, illness, and the  challenges and demands of everyday life
  • Help restore within ourselves a balanced sense of well-being, including an increased  awareness of all aspects of ourselves
  • Engage in practices of Mindfulness and Self-Compassion, which involve learning how  we can explicitly comfort and care for ourselves in this moment

We will use various techniques, including guided meditations and small and large group  dialogue and sharing.

Individuals who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, and Non-Binary are welcome. Allies to the LGBTQIA community are respectfully  asked not to attend this group to allow for a space of shared experience.

Open to Beginner and Experienced Meditators. No special skills are required nor expected.  Come exactly as you are!
