Our current culture of busyness, distraction, and urgency leaves us feeling hollow and uneasy. There is another way: mindfulness. Mindfulness is being in the present moment in an open, non-judgmental way. When we’re mindful, we listen, notice, focus, and create. We are present in our own lives.
About the Teacher: Joy Jordan is a former statistics professor who left academia to better align her inner and outer lives. Now she teaches meditation and mindfulness. Joy’s classes include active practice, accessible exercises, and heartfelt teachings.
This 5-week course includes formal instruction on meditation, current research on mindfulness, tools to work with difficult emotion, methods for cultivating positive experience, paths to self-compassion, and suggestions for informal, everyday practice. The elongated time-frame lets students fully engage and form new habits.

When students practice mindfulness, it awakens their inner wisdom and awareness, yet it’s easy to stop practicing-we often resist the very habits that bring us ease and healing. This second 5-week course re-establishes practices of meditation and mindfulness, and provides new instruction on self-compassion, inner-reflection, meditation, and everyday mindfulness practices. (*The course is reserved for people who’ve taken Mindfulness 101.)
