2/25 Practice Circle: Mindfulness of Movement and Breath

| February 23, 2018 | 0 Comments

Click Here at 9:00 p.m. Eastern Time on Sunday, February 25th 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.

February 25 — Guest Teacher Amy Balentine

At Practice Circle this Sunday, Amy Balentine will be leading us in brief mindful movement followed by a sitting meditation which will include mindfulness of breath as well as difficult body sensations. We will come to the edges of our difficult sensations and then explore ways of attending to and befriending ourselves when we meet these challenges.
