Mindfulness

Mindfulness is more than meditation. It allows us to be aware of the thoughts, patterns, and behaviors that no longer serve us. It is a conscious effort to heal and live our best lives. By practicing meditation we inspire unity and understanding.

Mindfulness and Real Talk

The purpose of this course is to develop mindful communication. We encourage students to bring topics of conversation, such as “having a loved one incarcerated” or “letting people down.” Each class begins and ends with a brief meditation exercise. These mindfulness exercises extend into our conversations. One of the most powerful aspects of this course is that it is co-led by formerly incarcerated men and women. Their perspective and honesty engages the students, and offers a model of relatable people engaging in meditation.
