This program will be a one year offering for those who would like to learn more about the foundational elements of mindfulness and want to be a part of a community of practitioners. The course will consist of four, six-week classes which will take place throughout out the year.

In between the six week classes will be special Midtown Mindfulness Sitting Groups just for the participants of this program. These Midtown Mindfulness Sessions will help with the continuity of the community and the teachings in between the six week programs.

These groups can create great opportunities for learning, friendship and long-term dharma friends.
