 Each class will consist of part lecture, part question/answer period and a period of meditation. Attend just one, or all eight classes. 

Mindfulness was originally taught by the Buddha some 1,700 years ago and was made popular by the author and lecturer Jon Kabat-Zinn in the 1940s with his book Wherever You Go, There You Are. Since 1967, over 1,500 studies have been conducted by over 250 independent research institutes showing Mindfulness Meditation to be clinically effective for the management of stress, anxiety and panic, chronic pain, depression, obsessive thinking, strong emotional reactivity, and a wide array of medical and mental health related conditions. 

Sessions begin on June 3rd and will continue on alternate Tuesdays through September 9th. Dates include: 6/3, 6/17, 7/1, 7/15, 7/29, 8/12, 8/26 and 9/9. Participants may attend one session or attend all eight sessions. No previous meditation experience is necessary. Walk-ins are welcome. 

Jim Bandler has been practicing meditation for over 25 years and has taught at many hospitals and universities. This event is open to all at no charge and will be held in the Cole Auditorium at Greenwich Library Cole. No registration required. For more information, please email the Health Librarian or call 203-625-6549.
