Do you live in your thoughts about the past or worries about the future? Do your emotions often cause stress and confusion? Do you get carried away by dramas


Introduction to Mindfulness and Meditation is a four-week course designed to support the practice of mindfulness, helping us develop the skills and attention to be fully present to our lives in the present moment, and to touch each moment deeply.  It is intended for those new to mindfulness and meditation, as well as for those who want to review the basics and establish a more consistent daily mindfulness and meditation practice. The course includes basic instruction as well as an exploration of practical ways to bring mindfulness into daily activities.  


 Learning Objectives:
  • Systematically explore mindfulness of breathing, the body and physical sensations through sitting and walking meditation and the body scan practice.
  • Establish and maintain a daily meditation practice.
  • Practice mindful meditation to explore the emotions, thoughts, and  overall awareness.
  • Apply mindfulness to difficult emotions and thoughts to avoid getting caught up in dramas.
  • Cultivate daily meditation and mindfulness practices so that mindfulness becomes an integral part of your daily life.        
This four-week course will begin on Tuesday, October 27 and November 3, 10 & 17 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Classes will be held at the FCM Practice Center, 6501 N. Nebraska Avenue, in Tampa. The cost is $75 for all four sessions. If you have questions, please contact us at info@floridamindfulness.org .
