Please come to a Day for Mindfulness Saturday, June 13 in the Brooklyn Heights Library. Feel free just to attend the first part, 10:15-13:30.
This day offers mindfulness in the tradition of Jon-Kabat Zinn and other secular teachers who broadened the practice of meditation for all. It also includes a secular implementation of many years of practice in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh.
This will be a day to relax, move our attention from thoughts of the past and the future and into the present, where there is more right with us than wrong with us.
We will learn ways to really enrich our experience of the present, to wake up to the beautiful things going on around us and in us, much of the time. The day is open to all, so please bring family and friends. We will approach all material from the point of view of the beginner; new and experienced meditators are fully welcome.
We will meet at the beautiful Cadman Plaza branch of the Brooklyn Public Library in Brooklyn Heights, 280 Cadman Plaza West, from 10:15 – 3:45.
All events at the library are free. There will be not even be a request for donations.
If you can only come for 2 hours, that’s wonderful. I’ve organized the day in 3 segments,
10:15 – 12:30 Welcome, meditations on body, breath, sounds and thoughts
12:30 – 1:45 Mindful eating in the community
1:45 – 3:45 Mindfulness meditation on thoughts and feelings
If you can only come to one segment, please come to the first, as that will put the others in context.
The library opens at 10:00 – come early if you can. The library provides comfortable chairs. If you wish, please bring your own cushion and blanket.
The library is at 280 Cadman Plaza West. Nearby subways are the A,C, 2, 3, 4, 5, R and F. We will be in the meeting room on the main floor. (It is to your right after you enter the library.)
Looking forward to a nurturing day, Donald
