Dear friends, I wanted to begin here with a message about mindfulness in this challenging time. Now is the time to feel our feet on the earth, rest in the breath, connect with our hearts, and practise wise response. The practise is big enough to hold this moment, too.
I am offering an online class with the theme of Mindfulness and Quiet Joy, on Mondays, June 8 - 22, with the intention of cultivating a sense of connection and community in this time of physical distance. --- Please note that this class is full, but if another 9 people are interested, I will offer another time slot on Mondays June 8, 15, and 22, from 4:00 - 5:30 pm.
Mindfulness and Quiet Joy: Support in These Times
We can turn our mindfulness to places of quiet joy in order to balance our heart and mind in this changing world. This class offers practises of nourishment that we can touch in this moment, even in the midst of challenge. The class will be limited to 12 in order to facilitate a sense of community and ample time for practise support. The at home, zoom format opens a surprising opportunity to bring these practises more fully into our everyday lives.
Please email me with your interest, at email@example.com With every good wish, Jeanne
