The Basics of Mindfulness

A six week series on the heart of mindfulness practice, starting Thursday May 11th 2017 at 6pm, taught by Doug Pullin.

"Mindfulness is simply being aware of what is happening right now without wishing it were different. Enjoying the pleasant without holding on when it changes (which it will). Being with the unpleasant without fearing it will always be this way (which it won't)." - James Baraz
