3 Mondays: Sept. 17, 24 and Oct. 1, 2012
7 – 9 pm
with Mushim and Sage Mahosadha
Being a person of color in the U.S. is stressful, and stress-related illnesses impact us disproportionately. Even “fighting for justice,” while positive in its intent, can end up wearing us down if we fall behind in replenishing our spirits. Please join us in committing to increased resilience, well-being, and compassion through the practices of mindfulness meditation (sitting and gentle movement), deep relaxation, and community dialogue in a safe and supportive environment. Instruction will be provided for beginners in meditation.
