Class Experience

Is meditation something you have considered stepping into? Is it time to find yourself sitting still? If you have answered yes, or even a maybe, just show up as you are.

Mindfulness meditation is not a religion and has many benefits including improved physical and mental health, reduced stress, faster recovery from illness, and more effective focus and attention.

Experience mindful meditation through six weekly sessions. The offerings will include moments of contemplation, walking meditation, shared silence, dialogue, as well as self-compassion explorations to awaken the creative self.

No experience necessary, no judgement. The container for all practices will be led with compassion and safety.

This class is made possible through the generous support of the Ottauquechee Health Foundation.

Susan Mordecai has been teaching mindfulness meditation for over 10 years. She has been fortunate to have had many wonderful teachers as she learned how to be comfortable within her own practice and ways to support others as they take to the cushion. Susan has practiced with Jon Katat-Zinn (MBSR: Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction), Daniel Rechtschaffen (Mindful Education Institute), Jack Kornfeld Mindful Education Institute), Vinny Ferraro (Mindful Education Institute), and Chris Willard (Barre Center for Buddhist Studies.) Susan also holds several certificates to teach mindfulness and has completed a master’s thesis on mindfulness practices for students and teachers as part of her studies at Columbia University.
