Befriending Oneself Through Mindfulness and Meditation - A Compassionate, Body-Centered Approach to Happiness   - taught by Nick Van Kleeck

This class meets online using Zoom, because Nick no longer lives in Tucson.

In this class, you will learn to relax your body, settle your mind and trust the inherent wisdom within you through meditation and other mindfulness techniques.

By bringing a gentle awareness to your experience, you can discover your innate capacity for freedom and awaken a natural openness and  generosity of spirit.

The class consists of a 30-45 minute guided meditation followed by teaching and/or discussion. About half the time we will break into smaller groups to give everyone a chance to participate in discussion. Participation in the discussion section is always optional; you are welcome to leave after the meditation if you prefer.

When: Thursday Evenings from 6:30 - 7:30 PM

This class and Tucson Community Meditation Center (TCMC) is supported by your generous donations. Even though this class meets online we have mortgage, utilities, and insurance expenses.
