**This is a Zoom class that meets on Wednesdays from 12pm to 1pm**

This class series is designed for people who have taken an Introduction to Mindfulness course at Mindful USC or elsewhere or those who have some meditation experience and wish to deepen their practice of mindfulness.  In this 5-week series, we will learn the basics of Mindfulness and how to establish a regular meditation practice at home along with some wisdom for taking your practice on the road. 

We all have periods of inspired meditation followed by boredom, disinterest, and distraction. Together we will look at how to support ourselves when we inevitably feel disconnected from what once felt like a vibrant, nourishing practice. 

Just like you befriend the breath as a home to return to when your minds wander – you’ll have the opportunity to become more intimate with your home practice – cultivating a place to come back to no matter what life’s circumstances. 

This class will include:

  • Finding unique rituals and habits to support your on-going practice.
  • How not to burn out on meditation. “Walk slowly, go further.”
  • Answer more deeply the question, “Why do I meditate?”
  • Deepening the basics of Mindfulness; the body, emotions and thoughts.
  • Deepening of Loving Kindness practice and Self- Compassion.
