A Month to Mindfulness: An Introduction to Meditation

Live Online Four Week Course

Blair Carleton

About this Event

What is the best meditation? The one you’ll do!

We’ve read of the many benefits of mindfulness for well-being but that doesn’t always translate into actual meditation.

These 4 weeks will explore a variety of practices foundational to mindfulness. Each class we will practice, discuss, and then practice again, so there will be a chance to understand both the “why” and the “how” of mindfulness, which can help establish meditation as a habit.

The goal is to find what works best for you, so you’ll be able to weave mindfulness into your daily life and capitalize on all those benefits you’ve heard so much about.

  • Week 1: An Introduction to Mindfulness
  • Week 2: Mindfulness of the Body
  • Week 3: The Gift of Compassion for a Self-Critical Mind
  • Week 4: Mindfulness of Emotions and Tailoring a Practice for Your Daily Life


Thursdays, May 5 – May 26, 2022
6:00 – 7:15 PM PT
Note: This is a 4-week class, but we are scheduling for one extra week in case of medical or COVID-related issues. Please hold an extra week (June 2nd) on your schedule in case a make-up class is needed.

CCFW aims to promote well-being by making evidence-based mindfulness practices available and accessible to community members, particularly professionals working with children and families. We believe that mindfulness has positive implications for professionals as well as the children and families they interact with. Therefore, we wish to encourage mindfulness training by removing possible financial barriers for professionals working with these specific populations. If these fees are cost-prohibitive for you, we invite you to apply for a scholarship.
