New to Mindfulness and Meditation?

Getting Started



Discover a wealth of opportunities to help you establish a skillful meditation practice, become more mindful, live with greater health and well-being, and awaken to the best of your human potential.

If you are new to mindfulness and meditation, it can be difficult to know where to begin. We suggest exploring the following paths to help you get you started.

Take the Introduction to Mindfulness & Meditation Course

Beginners and those who would like to establish or refresh their mindfulness and meditation practice are encouraged to take this introductory course. Although it is not required, we highly recommend this course for everyone, as it lays the foundation for all other programs offered by RIM.


Attend a Weekly Practice and Learning Drop-In

Weekly Drop-Ins are at the heart of RIM program offerings. They provide ongoing community support for meditation practice and learning. Drop-ins are attended by beginner and experienced folks alike. If an introductory course is not currently available, and you would like to get started, consider coming to a Drop-In.
