During these two months we’ll learn to develop and deepen our skill in practicing mindfulness of the body.   Mindfulness of the body is the foundation of Right Mindfulness . As the teachings of the Buddha indicate, if we can develop mindfulness of the body, we can bring about an end to suffering and find greater happiness in our lives.   In developing this mindfulness we’re able to cultivate present moment awarenes, as well as discernment and our connection to our heart. The classes will include, meditation, teaching and discussion, and suggestions for practice.

*Please note this is a DMC Community Member class.
