  • Mindfullness Class at NOMA

    Activities

    Mindfulness is defined as experiencing the present moment with open curiosity, without judgment, and with a willingness to be with what is.

    Mindfulness training teaches skills to help individuals:
    - Cope with the stress, pain, and challenges of everyday life
    - Deal with disturbing events with grace and composure
    - Be present and alive in the here and now.

    About mindfulness classes at NOMA: Classes will take place September 29, October 6, 13, and 20.

    $70 non-members | $50 NOMA members - Maximum class size is 30. Participants sign up for the series, not per class. Participants will meet in the second-floor Woldenberg Board Room.

    Participants will learn to develop mindfulness through guided meditation and brief exercises that will help them experience the present moment during everyday activities. Although no specific outcome is promised, participants typically report feeling more alive, more “in-tune” with themselves and others. In addition, research has shown significant beneficial effects in dealing with stress, anxiety, high blood pressure, depression, chronic pain, and diabetes. Contact NOMA to sign up and for more details.

    Instuctor: Bella Legault

    Afew thoughts from the instructor: "I love to be creative—whether it's creating mixed media artwork, cards, re-purposing clothes, or piecing together a new craft. I've been told that my passion, enthusiasm, and energy are contagious! I believe that anyone can be creative in their own way. It's the process of being creative that feeds my soul—not just the final product—and that's exactly what I want to share with others through Art À La Carte."
