Join us at

the Library across from MoMA

18 West 53   Street

A time to develop mindful awareness

and self-compassion.

When is the next Mindfulness Day?

Saturday, March 3, 2018

Will March come in like a lamb for this day? We’ll just have to see.

10 am-4 pm

Where?

The Library opposite MoMA,  53rd  Street between 5th and 6th Avenues.

We meet in the downstairs community room …. it has great quiet.

 

Why is this day special?

  • Because it will be “Now.”
  • Because it will include you
  • Because we will really become aware of the day, sense its fullness.
  • Because we will practice mindful awareness along with self-compassion.

PROGRAM

Morning (10 am – 12:30 pm)

Mindfulness Meditation practice

We will have basic instruction in mindfulness meditation, sitting, walking, and stretching.

 

Lunch (12:30 – 1:30)

A chance to eat and interact mindfully – mindfulness in action

 

Afternoon (1:30 pm – 4:00 pm)

Mindfulness Practice…. and giving your practice a Boost

We will sit and work with our experience in the moment as it is, nurturing compassion for ourselves and others. Even working with acceptance of the state of our practice, the frequency of practice, length of practice, quality of practice.

We will then then discuss obstacles, and plans for meditating as much as we want or need. We will discuss reasons to practice, common obstacles, and brainstorm solutions together. Our goal will be that each person feels they have a reasonable and workable plan to Boost their mindfulness meditation, mindfulness activities, and mindful listening/talking, going forward.

All are welcome

We welcome, beginners and masters, regardless of your experience with mindfulness meditation.

Chairs are provided. Bring a cushion and blanket if you’d like meditate close to the earth.

Just show up – no reservations, no cost. We have a large room, bring colleagues, friends, relatives.
