Coming Home to Ourselves: Mindfulness for Navigating Change (Shalyn)
Change is an inevitable part of our daily experiences. This meditation will help us cultivate a sense of mindfulness, present-moment awareness, and compassion to help us feel grounded within our bodies and prepared to engage with the dynamics of change without becoming overwhelmed. This mindfulness meditation series focuses on creating a sense of inner security as we navigate change in our daily lives and learn to create a space within ourselves where different emotional experiences can be held with compassion and curiosity. No matter what changes are happening in our lives, we can use mindfulness meditation to create a safe home within our bodies that we can feel securely grounded in. The mindfulness skills students will learn can help them experience greater inner freedom, emotional regulation, stability, and choice.

Mindfulness for Cultivating Compassion (Shalyn)
This mindfulness meditation series is focused on using mindfulness to cultivate a sense of compassion for ourselves and others. Through living in a society that values production and external achievement at the expense of emotional and physical well-being, it can feel counterintuitive to experience compassion for ourselves, other people, and sentient beings. We will be using this mindfulness meditation practice to explore what compassion looks and feels like in our bodies, and ways we can feel and practice compassion for ourselves, our communities, nature, and all sentient beings in order to take small but important steps towards creating a more compassionate society.
