How will I learn to meditate in the Mindfulness Skills Group (PA, VA, NJ)?
We learn by talking to each other, learning about mindfulness, and practicing together. These three pillars - practicing, listening, and building community - provide a supportive environment for learning a simple, but challenging, skill. Each week, we learn about, try, and reflect on a different kind of meditation practice. The goal is to leave the group with a sense of how meditation might work in YOUR life, and the experience necessary to keep your practice going in a way that works for you.
Is there homework in the Mindfulness Skills Group (PA, VA, NJ)?
Kind of. Meditation practice doesn't work very well if you only do it once a week, so the facilitator will suggest ways you can practice at home.
