Mindfulness: Discussion and Practice
September 16 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
Every month on the third Saturday, either through Zoom or outside the library building, begin or deepen your mindfulness practice. Mindfulness is paying attention to one’s thoughts, body sensations, emotions and surroundings without judgment. Mindfulness can be used for many reasons, from better physical health to better mental health to improved relationships with one’s self and others.
Our meetings will include discussions and short mindfulness exercises/practices. We will explore sitting, standing, lying down and moving mindfulness experiences.
“Without judgment” is one of the main principles of mindfulness and we will incorporate non-judgmentalness into our time together. Everyone is welcome from beginners to the experienced. No judgments. Registration is online at our website. You do not need to register to attend, this is just to help us with the amount of participants.
Roger Reynolds will be leading us in this practice. Roger was introduced to mindfulness in a course led by a psychiatrist and titled “Mindfulness for Depression.” Living with PTSD, depression and anxiety, Roger credits mindfulness as a foundation of his mental health healing. The focus will be on general mindfulness, knowing everyone can benefit from increased awareness. Roger’s mental health mindfulness foundation will come through in his leading, yet not be the primary focus.
