Practice Circle: Mindful Movement

| February 9, 2018 | 0 Comments

Click Here at 9:00 p.m. Eastern Time on Sunday, February 11th to Join the Live Session.

During January and February, Practice Circle will be aligned with the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Online Live program offered by Ted Meissner and Amy Balentine. There may be people from that class joining Practice Circle as an additional opportunity to meditate with others, along with anyone curious about this community and what online practice is like. The themes and guidance will come from the MBSR program, and will be comparable to how those are delivered in class.

Our format for Practice Circle will remain the same half hour of guidance followed by the second half hour of dyads and group sharing. Ted and Amy will be leading for most of the sessions with Mark still hosting, and taking a much earned rest from developing Practice Circle content during this time. Guest teachers are also expected to join and lead.

Sunday, February 11th — Mindful Movement with Guest Teacher Meg Chang

For the next Practice Circle we are honored to be joined by Meg Chang, Senior MBSR Teacher at the Center for Mindfulness at UMass, who will lead the meditation and inquiry. In the first half hour there will be a guided body scan and some mindful movement, followed by small group discussions in virtual breakout rooms, and then inquiry into the experience led by Meg.
