Mudita Mindfulness Community

Our Intentions

Mudita is a secular and nonsectarian mindfulness community open to everyone! Our name comes from the word mudita in Pali, which means sympathetic joy -- the joy we feel for the good fortune and happiness of others. This is exactly what we do - we come together once a week to learn and practice mindfulness, and to rejoice in each other's progress.🤗

Our intentions are:
1. learn & practice mindfulness together,
2. share and learn from each other,
3. support each other in our continued mindfulness practices.

Guest Teachers

On Wednesday Aug 14th, our community welcomed Sasha Nelson as a guest teacher! Sasha is a fellow mindfulness teacher from our mindfulness teacher training with Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach. Aside from being a mindfulness teacher, she is a vinyasa yoga teacher, a wellness consultant and writer, a dancer, and a food and sustainability enthusiast. She will talk to us about sustainability of mind, body & planet -- how to integrate simple yet profound mindfulness practices into every day life. Her talk will be followed by a meditation practice led by her. Our meeting, as always, will open with a check-in on how your practice has been going. 😊
