Unified Mindfulness (for adults)
April 2 - May 21 weekly at 7:30 a.m.
I’m excited to be offering this with my friend and colleague, Metta Movement and Meditation studio founder, Janet Nicol. Unified Mindfulness is a system of meditation developed by Shinzen Young to help you sustain a mindfulness practice both on and off the cushion. Janet and Erin will guide you through an 8-week series that builds on each class and introduces a new technique each session. This system is used by leading institutions like Harvard and Carnegie Mellon for their research on meditation.
You will leave this course with researched-based, 10 minute meditations that you can practice at home for the rest of your life so that you can start enjoying all the tremendous benefits that a mindfulness practice will bring into your life.
Unified Mindfulness is also a secular form of meditation, which means it’s not religious in any way, so anyone, of any faith, can join us.
We recommend attending all 8 classes of this series...
But all the sessions are open to drop-in as well!
Sign up using your Metta studio pass, or pay what you can at the door.

Join me on Thursdays for “Meditate & Reset,” my drop-in class at Metta from 11:15-12:00 – this mid-day meditation will help you destress from your morning and head into your afternoon feeling refreshed and focused.
