  • Learn Mindfulness Meditation for Anxiety and Depression

    Interested in exploring a different way of being and living in the world instead of your head? Join the innovative class at MBCT Austin to learn how to be mindful in your daily life and respond to your feelings rather than react to them. You'll learn a unique approach to mindfulness meditation, a practice which has been scientifically proven to change brain chemistry and neuronal structure permanently for the better. The course includes eight (8) classes from 7:00-9:00p.m. on Wednesdays and a half day Saturday retreat. Next course begins April 24th.
    Wednesdays, 7pm-9pm

    Fun Stop 5K and Fest

    It’s that time of year again, weirdos. Formerly known as the Keep Austin Weird Fest and 5K, this is a race we can get behind, because no one cares who wins and the focus is on drinking. Bands and businesses are littered throughout the three or so miles of costumed zaniness. The festival starts at 4pm with the 5K at 6pm, if you even make it to the starting line.
    Date TBA. $35.
