NOLA Meditation Resources

There are a variety of drop-in mindfulness meditation groups in New Orleans, in addition to the NOLA Mindfulness weekly group.  If you are currently enrolled in the 8-week MBSR course, please inquire with the instructor about attending other sitting groups during the course. It can sometimes interfere with the curriculum.
