Thank you for your interest in attending Mindful Valley’s Mindfulness Meditation classes. The weekly groups are more advanced and require that you have taken a beginner class or have prior Mindfulness mediation experience. If you are a beginner, we highly recommend that you attend a six week Beginning Mindfulness class first. Beginning classes teach you the nuts and bolts of Mindfulness meditation/practice including how to deal with the difficulties that arise during meditation and how to bring mindfulness into your daily life in order to manage emotions and life more effectively.
