About the event

6-Week "Introduction to Mindfulness Meditation" Course


March 7 - April 11

7-8:15pm CST

Hybrid: In-Person At Empowered Spaces + Virtual

Mindfulness is a tool, technique and a skill to cultivate compassionate awareness and attention with ourselves and thus, our world. While we cannot always control the life that unfolds around and through us, we can learn to attend to our direct experience in a skillful way that invites nurturance, increased access to agency, and a more resonant relationship with our body. This 6-week, “Introduction to Mindfulness Meditation” course ushers students through the skill-building basics of Insight meditation practice with an intrinsic trauma-sensitive / anti-oppressive foundation.

Each class session lasts 75 minutes and includes lecture, guided meditation, question & answer period, and a take-away prompts to continue cultivating a supportive home-practice. This course will be held hybrid in person at Empowered Spaces + virtual (over Google Meet) and no meditation experience is necessary. Course registration includes a mindfulness & mental health resource list, an intro video to help students prepare & build consistency, a glossary of common terms, weekly practice prompts and more. Upon registration, students will receive an intake form and waiver to fill out for participation.
