Mindfulness Groups

Foundations of Mindfulness Groups

(next group dates to be announced)

In Couples Clinic Foundations of Mindfulness group, people meet for an hour each week to discuss their experiences as they progress through an 8-week, self-guided mindfulness exercise program.  The self-guided program provides recordings that guide participants, step-by-step, in implementing 20-60 minutes of mindfulness exercises each day. Group members come to weekly Foundations of Mindfulness group meetings prepared to share their experiences with other group members who are similarly progressing through the exercises.  Each week, the group facilitator gives participants questions to reflect on as they engage in the exercises of the week.  Participants share their reflections on these questions during the next group meeting.   As a group, members engage in at least one mindfulness exercise during each meeting.

Outside of class, each group member implements either a mindfulness self-guided exercise program of exercises.
