The next cycle of classes begins Tuesday, Sept. 26 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The required Orientation and Class One will be rolled into one class, so after the Orientation there will be a break, if you wish to continue and take the class, the next hour will be Class One. The Tuesday class is definitely a go. If there’s enrollment for a day class, it will be on Thursdays, starting Sept 28 from 9:30-11am. All classes are 90 minutes, except the first one. You can register here.
The classes will be held at Lotus Voice, located at 4994 Park Lake Road in East Lansing.
New to MiddlePath Mindfulness classes?
Read the frequently asked questions below to find out more about how these classes are designed to reduce stress and empower you to achieve more balance in your life. If you have additional questions, don’t hesitate to contact Anna.
Q: What do the classes entail?
A: The vehicles through which mindfulness is cultivated in the 6-week course include sitting meditation, group discussion, body scan, inquiry, walking meditation, and (if you are physically able) gentle yoga. In addition to in-class activities, homework is assigned to strengthen the new practices learned in class.
Q: Why an 8-week course?
A: For many, adopting attitudes of patience, acceptance, letting go, non-striving, non-judging, beginner’s mind, and trust can be an uphill climb. That’s why we need 6 weeks, to offer support for the blossoming of these attitudes. Like anything worthwhile, this requires discipline and commitment.
Q: Why are these classes offered in a group atmosphere?
A: Because of the potential for members to attune closely with others, to have an experience of connection that we all long for, and to resonate with another’s condition. And ultimately, to see that though we are all different, we all share this human condition. This is profound and enormously valuable.
