Upstairs at Publik Kitchen • 931 East 900 South • Salt Lake City
In the past decade, mindfulness practice has become more widespread than ever in the U.S. But there’s more to it than simply “being in the moment.” In this course, you’ll learn techniques for connecting with the present, and how to meet whatever is happening in your experience skillfully. Being mindful reveals the inner workings of our bodies, minds and hearts, and gives us the skills to choose how to relate to them. As a result, we are able to act with greater integrity in our lives. Mindfulness is for everyone seeking to live a more peaceful, harmonious life.
The class is being held upstairs at the new Publik Kitchen location. It is currently full, but watch for a new mindfulness course starting after the first of the year.
Thursdays, March 14 to April 25, 2024 • 1:00 to 2:00 pm

Mindfulness in the Garden: Sitting and Walking Meditation
Mindfulness meditation is based in the traditional practice of vipassana meditation. Vipassana means “clear seeing.” Mindfulness practice teaches us how to see and be with our lives as they are. We learn to be present with our thoughts, emotions and conditioned patterns. When we become aware of the thoughts, emotions and patterns that “catch” us, we realize we have the power to transform those patterns that no longer serve us.
But there’s more to mindfulness practice than simply being in the moment. If you’ve ever practiced—or tried to practice—meditation, you likely know that it’s not easy. This course will offer a variety of basic skills and techniques to help your mind settle into the present moment with greater ease.
Mindfulness practice is appropriate for anyone seeking to live a more harmonious life.
