Mindfulness meditation has many proven benefits, but establishing a consistent personal practice can be a challenge. Meditation in Everyday Life is an introductory course designed to help new meditators learn the basics of meditation practice and bring the benefits to their daily lives.

The course provides participants with the tools, teachings and support for working with meditation in daily life. Through establishing a consistent meditation practice, we learn to relax and simply be with whatever is going on in our lives. Over time, meditation helps us to cultivate courage, humor, and stability in the face of the daily complexities we all experience.

The course includes guided meditation, talks, and open discussion of the challenges meditators face in their practice.
