New! Mindfulness Meditation

Join instructor Jeri Okamoto-Tanaka for “Cultivating Loving Awareness and Wise Action:  An Introduction to Mindfulness Meditation Practice,” a 5-session online series on Mondays, 7-8:30 pm, June 29 through July 27. 

This foundation course introduces participants to the basics of mindfulness, provides skills for developing and sustaining a personal meditation practice, and facilitates the application of mindful attention, practice and wise action in daily living.  Each class offers a thematic talk, guided practice, discussion and Q&A in a supportive small-group environment.  Intersections with Christian contemplative practices (such as prayer) are included.  Respecting social distancing guidelines, this is a live Zoom class (not a pre-recorded webinar). 

Contact Jeri at jcotanaka828@gmail.com for more information, to register or to be on the contact list for future offerings.  Please register by June 24th.
