 Drop-in Meditation Session: The Body Scan: A Practice for Cultivating a Friendly Attitude Towards Ourselves

 taught by Richard Berger, MD 

Monday, August 13, 2018, 6:00 - 7:00 pm 


CCFW is pleased to offer monthly drop-in meditation sessions. A different CCFW instructor will lead each month’s session so that participants can experience different mindfulness practices and instructor styles. These sessions are also intended to support participants from previous mindfulness courses in strengthening their home practice. All levels of experience are welcome.


About the Session 

In this session we will practice the Body Scan, one of the foundational practices in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR). The Body Scan is an opportunity to tune into our breath and observe things as they are without judging. Together, these skills allow us to strengthen our present moment awareness, increase our emotional awareness, and cultivate a friendlier attitude towards ourselves. This session will introduce participants to practices and methodologies that Dr. Berger will offer in his fall Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course
