An Introduction to Unified Mindfulness at Concordia Center for Spiritual Living

Beginning May 1, Alan Vukas, a meditation instructor and coach, will offer an eight-week course, An Introduction to Unified Mindfulness. This is a modern system of mindfulness techniques which develop the attention skills of concentration, sensory clarity and equanimity.

These three skills help people explore their inner and outer world to better understand how they think and feel. Research shows that this enhanced understanding can reduce stress and anxiety, increase attention and memory, and increase appreciation and joy.

Throughout the course, attendees will learn what mindfulness meditation is and its benefits both on and off the cushion. Each week during a 90-minute class, attendees will learn a different technique to help them start enjoying the benefits of mindfulness meditation. Attendees will learn how to practice mindfulness in stillness as well as throughout the day through music, exercising, walking and even washing the dishes. Note that this course is limited to 20 participants. Contact soon to reserve a spot.

Cost: $80. Location: 292 West Shore Rd., Warwick. For more information, call 401-732-1552. Register at
