ONE 4 ME Mindful Practice Group for Mental Health Providers (FREE)
05/01/2021 - 07/31/2021 - 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Your presence is welcomed whether you’re a seasoned meditator or beginner who’s curious about cultivating mindfulness in daily life. We’ll begin each session with mindful movement (slow, gentle stretching and movement) followed with a guided meditation practice (sitting, walking or lying down) and an opportunity to share and connect with others who are also cultivating peace of mind and a more joyful heart.
By design the group ends at 1:50 creating space for a gentle transition from the inner landscape of being with oneself to the well-known outer landscape of doing for others at work, home and beyond.
When: Wednesdays from 1-1:50 PM on Zoom (signing up doesn’t commit you to attending them all, but you will receive the invitation each week unless you notify us otherwise)
