8 Week Mindfulness Skills Course


  • The Boston Center for Contemplative Practice 796 Beacon Street Newton, MA, 02459 United States (map)

As we look with wisdom and kindness at our stress, pain, anxiety, grief, and anger, they transform. When we choose to look with awareness and savor our joy, love, successes, talents, family, fortune... we can enhance our lives and help others to do the same.

This course is tailored to those who have heard about mindfulness but have not yet taken the step to practice, those who have dabbled in mindfulness or those who meditate and wish to deepen their meditation with daily practice. 

The class includes weekly inspirational, historical and scientific readings, personal meditation instruction, recordings and the support of a group. Come prepared for a simple yet challenging practice that will help you clarify what is important, strengthen your trust in your inner wisdom, and move towards the life you want.
