"I truly enjoyed Mira's largely silent guided meditation today. It was restful and helped me to be centered. I felt safe in the space and I felt welcome within a community that is new to me. Thank you all for the practice."

4-Week Intro to Mindfulness Class Series

Tuesdays May 10, 17, 24, 31, 2022

6:30-7:45pm Pacific Time

(note time changed from when originally announced!)

ONLINE

Welcome!

I am currently participating in a mindfulness meditation teacher training. As a part of this program, I will be offering a 4-week online Introduction to Mindfulness course. It is freely offered. Participants are asked to attend all 4 sessions if at all possible and to submit a feedback survey at the end of the course.

Course Description:

In this 4-week Introduction to Mindfulness course, we will explore the foundational practices of mindfulness and loving awareness as they relate to mindfulness of the breath, body, and of thoughts and emotions. We will learn about common challenges to our mindfulness practice and ways to bring the practice into our daily lives to foster more ease, compassion, and kindness to ourselves and others.

This course is open to everyone, regardless of your background or experience in meditation or mindfulness, and is welcoming of people from all different backgrounds and identities. While these teachings have their roots in Buddhism (Vipassana insight practice), this course is welcoming and accessible to individuals of all faith backgrounds.

Class Description:

We will meditate together for about 25-30 minutes. I will offer guided meditations on mindfulness of the breath, body, sensations, thoughts, feelings and emotions etc. Mindfulness meditation, starting with awareness of our breath, can help reduce anxiety and lead to states of peace and equanimity. New and experienced meditators welcome. Questions and sharing welcome at the very beginning and end of class.

About my practice

I practice and teach Vipassana insight meditation. I attended my first meditation event at Spirit Rock Meditation Center in Woodacre, CA as a freshman in college. I have continued my practice steadily since then for the past nearly 20 years, including on multiple silent residential meditation retreats. My teachers include James Baraz, Oren Jay Sofer, Tara Brach, Jack Kornfield, and Susie Harrington, among others. I have been offering an online meditation class since May 2020 and am currently participating in a two-year meditation teacher training program. I am also studying Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychology which informs my work in mindfulness meditation and in Argentine tango.
