**About the Mindfulness Meditation Class**
Mindfulness meditation was originally called vipassana. Vipassana was the supposed meditation practice that The Buddha did to become enlightened. Mindfulness meditation is basically getting in touch with how we experience and sense the world through seeing, hearing, and feeling. In the system of Unified Mindfulness, we utilize three core skills: concentration, sensory clarity, and equanimity. Applying these three core skills to our sensory categories of seeing, hearing, and feeling, our experience of what being Human is becomes enhanced or “enlightened”.
Mindfulness meditation has been proven to lower anxiety, increase happiness, and just bring more fulfillment to life. Science is just now catching up with what the meditation community has been claiming for thousands of years: meditation is healthy! Mindfulness meditation is also useful for metaphysical and intuitive work such as channeling or tarot reading, because when we can better understand how we’re sensing and experiencing a situation, we can better communicate how the reading or the intuitive work is going or understood to others.
In this class, we will be exploring mindfulness meditation through the system of “Unified Mindfulness”. Unified Mindfulness is a brand of mindfulness meditation that has refined Vipassana and Zen meditation into a hybrid. The first 8 weeks have been designed to give someone with little experience a taste of what mindfulness meditation can offer. We will explore techniques such as “ see-hear-feel,” “feel good,” “feel rest,” “feel flow,” etc. These techniques are focused on giving a beginner to mindfulness meditation the tools to start to experience the benefits of mindfulness instantly. After the first 8 weeks, the mindfulness curriculum can continue depending on interest and necessity of the community.
