MAPs Class Schedule

Class Quick Links

To receive class schedule announcements, subscribe to our newsletter »

Online MAPs now come in two formats. All classes offer the same curriculum: our evidence-based MAPs. Each class is a combination of lecture, practice, and group feedback and discussion.  Classes are 6-weeks long and meet once per week for 2 hours with summary handouts to continue your practice after class. Our online classes are an educational experience suitable for people of all backgrounds. 

Pre-Recorded Online Classes

This is a good choice for someone who wants a webinar without much community or teacher interaction. You can work at your own pace for the duration of the 6-week course with an additonal two weeks after for review for a total of 8 weeks of access to course materials. The online course consists of recordings from six previously live classes. Participants will have access to audio materials as well as an "Ask the Mindfulness Teacher" option to have any questions related to the course or your practice answered. Class sessions begin every Monday. You must register by Sunday at 11:59 pm, PST to begin the following Monday. Any registrations after, will begin the next Monday. If Monday falls on a holiday, you will be sent class details on the following business day. 

Live Online Classes

These live online classes are held in a small community format led by senior MARC teachers as well as affiliate MARC teachers you’ve come to know and love. This is a good choice for those who want to go through MAPs with a group of others, live teacher support, and is date/time specific. Class start dates and times vary, choose the times that work best for you!

Spring/Summer 2022 Class Schedule:

MAPs II: Opening to Joy

The latest science shows us that the practice of mindfulness leads to states of joy and well-being. Join us for a class where we focus on cultivating states of joy. We will explore what gets in the way of joy, how joy arises in meditation practice, and how to bring more happiness and well-being into our daily lives.

We will also learn the practice of appreciative joy—taking delight in other’s good fortune. This practice is an excellent antidote to jealousy and covetousness. The class will include guided sitting and walking meditations, lectures and discussion, and relational practices, which all cultivate positive emotions and greater states of well-being. Suitable for beginning and experienced students (see pre-requisite below).

Pre-requisite: Attendance in any introductory MAPs I series or equivalent mindfulness introductory class with permission from our instructor. If you have not taken a MAPs I class at MARC, please email us a brief description of your equivalent experience to [email protected] before class start date.

MAPs II: Working with Difficult Emotions

Many of us struggle with anxiety, depression and anger. These natural human emotions can be a source of suffering that can negatively impact quality of life. Mindfulness has been shown to promote more states of well being and happiness and has been incorporated into a variety of clinical treatments for mental health issues such as anxiety and depression. But whether or not you have a mental health concern or simply struggle with the challenges of 21st century living and the anxiety, stress, and frustration of life, this class can support you in finding more ease, balance, and happiness.

In the class we will work weekly with each emotion, exploring how to bring mindfulness to it and include other approaches to working with it. We will also learn practices that antidote difficult emotions such as equanimity or balance, compassion, and loving kindness.

This class may be particularly relevant for mental health clinicians, but is open to anyone.

Pre-requisite: Attendance in any introductory MAPs I series or equivalent mindfulness introductory class with permission from our instructor. If you have not taken a MAPs I class at MARC, please email us a brief description of your equivalent experience to [email protected] before class start date.

MAPs II: Cultivating Positive Emotions

In this follow up class to MAPs I, we will learn how to cultivate loving kindness, compassion, equanimity, joy, gratitude, and forgiveness.

We will learn new meditations to develop these qualities, tools to work with when we find them ourselves stuck and not feeling positive emotions, and practical exercises to incorporate them into our daily life. This is a helpful expansion to our basic mindfulness practice.

Pre-requisite: Attendance in any introductory MAPs I series or equivalent mindfulness introductory class with permission from our instructor. If you have not taken a MAPs I class at MARC, please email us a brief description of your equivalent experience to [email protected] before class start date.

MAPs II: Turning Obstacles into Allies

In this follow up class to MAPs I, this class will offer tools for working with both outer and inner obstacles, helping us to learn to see difficulties, not as problems, but as situations and mind states that can actually help us more deeply understand ourselves and our practice.

Pre-requisite: Attendance in any introductory MAPs I series or equivalent mindfulness introductory class with permission from our instructor. If you have not taken a MAPs I class at MARC, please email us a brief description of your equivalent experience to [email protected] before class start date.

Cultivating Forgiveness (5-weeks, PRE-RECORDED ONLINE)

MARC has teamed up with Mindful to present a new online course: Cultivating Forgiveness.

In this class, Diana Winston guides us on a journey of forgiveness - a journey that includes forgiving others as well as ourselves. Diana teaches with empathy, kindness and gentleness, encouraging us to release the pain, anger and self-blame that we may be holding in our hearts to find a renewed sense of inner release and freedom.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Deepen these ideas through formal and informal meditation practices that you can apply every day, for the rest of your life
  • Transform pain and resentment into an abiding sense of well-being and freedom
  • Understand forgiveness as a kindness to yourself, rather than an act of condoning others’ harmful actions
  • Cultivate forgiveness for others, for actions you’ve done that have harmed others, and towards yourself

Pre-requisite: Mindfulness experience is a plus, but not a must.
