2. MINDFULNESS MEDITATION
Meditation is a mindfulness practice which can reduce stress, increase calmness in mind and body, and promote happiness and peace.
This program will offer the following structure: Opening introduction, 20 minute meditation, a reflection and sharing.
Stressed out, overwhelmed, distracted and looking for more peace in your life?
If so, you may benefit from mindfulness meditation.
Mindfulness meditation is a way to quiet the mind and body. When you use meditation, you turn inward, connect with a repetitive focus, such as the breath, a word or prayer. Your body and mind begin to quiet down and a state of physical and mental rest ensue.
Mindfulness meditation is not just an inward process.
When we become more peaceful, that energy and presence can grace those around us in such positive ways.
All are welcomed.
