What you'll learn in this meditation class:

In this class, you'll learn the basics of starting a personal meditation practice. I'll teach you how to relax your mind, sharpen your concentration, increase calmness and clarity, and induce sustainable, conscious happiness. Most importantly, I'll provide you with tools to reduce stress and anxiety, and become more resilient.

This class is open to anyone who wants to learn more about mindfulness, whether you've meditated 100 times or 0. I'll address the basic barriers that many beginners face,such as: How long do I meditate? Where should I meditate? What do I focus on? How do I overcome distractions? The workshop will include some guided meditations and provide plenty of time for questions and discussion.

You will walk away with the ability to:
  • Create a personal mindfulness meditation practice
  • Reduce stress and increase calmness
  • Train your mind to make better decisions
  • Sleep better, and reduce physical pain or depression

Refund Policy
If you're looking for a refund or class credit, you need to back out of the class a full week before it starts. (No exceptions!) We know it's draconian, but since we aren't charging an arm and a leg and have to buy all our materials in advance, it's kinda hard to deal with last-minute bailings.

We also can't transfer registrations to a future session of the class. Sorry!

Instead of dropping out if you have a schedule conflict, a better idea is to ask around and see if any of your friends want the spot. We can't give you a refund less than a week out, even if there's a wait list for the class. 

Regarding bad weather, we generally only cancel classes if the subway system stops running. If traveling during snowstorms might be an issue for you, please take this into account before registering for a class.
