This is through Mindfulness Everyday in partnership with Discover Mindfulness.
The event is open to everyone interested in bringing mindfulness to education – educators, parents, professionals, students and others. Come experience the power of community while practicing mindfulness together.
Spending a day in mindfulness is a great way to deepen your practice and show yourself kindness and compassion. The day will be in silence and will move through various mindful activities, allowing you to see how you can integrate mindfulness into your life, and to enjoy the calm, joy, and connection of a longer period of practice.
We’ll have: Guided sitting meditation / Body scan / Mindful movement / Mindful eating /Mindful walking / An opportunity to share your practice and ask questions at the end of the day.
Please wear comfortable clothes, bring a sweater, perhaps a blanket or shawl, yoga mat, water, mindful lunch, and anything else you might need to take care of yourself.
