Because of the high interest in the Mindfulness for the New Year course, First Met will offer a second six-week Mindfulness course on Tuesday evenings in September and October 2017 with a break for Thanksgiving. The course will be offered by Wally Lazaruk, PhD, an education consultant and Certified Professional Coach.
Specific dates for this event are September 12, 19 and 26 and October 3, 17 and 24 noting the break for Thanksgiving.
In this highly participatory and practical course, participants will learn how to increase their awareness and concentration, improve their ability to cope with stressful situations, and develop self-compassion and compassion for others. Classes will include:
Guided instruction in selected mindfulness practices such as mindful breathing, body scan, mindful sitting, mindful walking, mindful movements and befriending meditation
Group discussions and home assignments to enhance awareness in everyday life
Wally Lazaruk received professional training in the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program (MBSR) developed at the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society of the University of Massachusetts Medical School. He worked as an intern with the Center for Mindfulness, University of California, San Diego and received training in MindfulnessBased Cognitive Therapy.
Fees for the course are $75 and will be used to fund Spiritual Care and Wellness initiatives at First Met. Should you require financial assistance, please fill out a manual registration form and deposit it in the Finance Office.
