Mindfulness Courses

Mindfulness is the ability to focus our attention fully on the present moment with acceptance and without judgment. Katy Kristoffersen, our multi-talented Music Director, will lead the two courses. You do not have to attend every session in a course — drop-ins are most welcome!

Foundational Mindfulness (six sessions)

 Sunday, January 7 — Sunday, February 11, 2024, 4:30-5:30 PM (PLEASE NOTE that on February 11, the course meets 2:30-3:30 PM)

Each session will open with a short (5-minute) meditation, followed by journaling, information presented by Katy on a facet of mindfulness, a group discussion, and closing with a second meditation grounded in the session’s content. We will aim to be together for about one hour per session, focusing on bringing mindfulness into a specific category of life, such as attention, the body, and emotion.

Christian Mindfulness (five sessions)

 Sunday, February 18 — Sunday, March 17, 2024, 4:30-5:30 PM

This course, during Lent, will follow the same structure as the first course but will focus on specifically Christian topics relating to mindfulness.

 These classes are open to all people in our community (not just church members), including teens.
