Fullerton College Mindful Meditation Classes Open to the Public
The campus community and public are invited to free mindful meditation classes during March.
The classes are 5:30–6:30 p.m. Thursdays in Building 200, Room 1426. No special equipment or previous experience is required. The class is great for anyone who is interested in learning to practice mindfulness, or those who are already familiar but would like to invigorate their practice, said Amy Garcia, the program coordinator.
Mindfulness is the art of paying attention to the present, rather than dwelling on the past or worrying needlessly on the future. The classes include a brief discussion about what mindfulness is and guided meditation sessions.
Mindfulness is great for learning how to break bad habits, bounce back from disappointment, cultivate friendships and feeling safer, calmer and more confident. “There are things you can do to bring yourself into the present moment so you’re not raging against the steering wheel or fuming over conflicts,” Garcia said.
The month will include four classes, each with an independent, self-contained lesson.”If you can go to one, go to one. If you can go to all four, go to all four,” Garcia said.
The classes are part of Fullerton College’s Mindful Growth initiative, which aims to foster contemplative practices and growth opportunities to develop equity, student success, individual well being and community.
The classes have no religious dimension and previous experience is not necessary. Reserve your spot by emailing the program coordinator Amy Garcia at firstname.lastname@example.org.
