Mindfulness & Meditation SIG

Mindfulness has many applications but is most associated with/as a meditation practice.The term mindfulness can be defined as a moment-to-moment awareness of one’s experience without judgment.

In a variety of ways, this practice can provide one with skills that allow greater equanimity, while being with both the struggles and the joys that arise in life. There is a lot of flexibility within the practice, making it compatible and adaptable within different lifestyles.

We meet weekly on Zoom and the format will be an outgrowth of the group dynamic. Initially we will start with brief talk, Q&A, and then sit/meditate for :15 minutes. Report experiences and Q&A. Sit/meditate again for :15 minutes. Eventually we would like to move to a longer period of meditation once group is a little more practiced.

Eventually we may try to have some meetings in person, but this will depend on the group's preferences and how the COVID situation evolves.

Please check out our Events page to register for the next meeting of this group. (You don't need to do this if you have previously registered for Mindfulness SIG session - you will be able to use the same Zoom link you used previously).

Please contact Roberta Vogel for additional information.
