Mindfulness Series Offered at Newton Community Education
Newton Community Education (NCE) presents a mindfulness series from April to June. Class offerings include Kabbalah: A Method of Healing, Mindful Parenting, Introduction to Mind Body Healing, and Buddhist Meditation Without Belief. Another series called Mindfulness: The Adventure of Living Well consists of four talks by leading practitioners and teachers of mindfulness. NCE also offers several types of yoga classes on an ongoing basis. “Our classes offer students a multitude of experiences to enrich their lives and bring them greater well-being,” says NCE Marketing Associate Paula Spies. “Our knowledgeable teachers will meet students where they’re at and help them to use these techniques in their daily lives.”
NCE director Ed Hauben says that his own experiences with the transformative power of mindfulness led him to introduce this series. “At NCE I have embarked on a journey of providing a broad range of mind, body and soul classes. Our goal is to give the community greater access to a variety of teachings and teachers of mindfulness in order for participants to experience greater peace and harmony.”
NCE is a self-sustaining branch of the Newton Public Schools and is open to all students, regardless of residence. Classes and talks take place at Newton North and South High Schools.
