Contemplative Classes for Wellbeing and Resilience

 

Contemplative practices are practical and transformative which allow for the development of skills for quieting the mind in the midst of our hectic lives. Some people find that active, physical practices, like yoga, work best for them. Others find nourishment in still and silent practices, like mindful meditation. We encourage you to discover for yourself how contemplative practice, in whatever form is best for you, can enrich your life and work. Start by meeting our instructors and exploring the classes we offer, below.
