Mindfulness classes in Seattle

Mindfulness is an interesting phenomenon, and mindfulness classes are a new variation on the theme. Rekindle School is offering a new Seattle mindfulness class focused on mindfulness as it relates to the creative process.  It’s taught by Andrea D’Asaro and Christine Soja. From the class description: 

“Looking for Mindfulness Classes in Seattle? This 3-week workshop, taught by Andrea D’Asaro and Christine Soja, is now open for enrollment… Many people experience blocks in their creative process. These blocks can cost years of progress on your chosen path.

I’m curious what others think about mindfulness classes. Can it actually be taught?  Is it different in its effect from meditation?

I have a friend who’s thinking about taking it. I’ll be curious about her experience. If you want more information about the class, you can check it out here.
