Mindfulness
Managing Mindfulness is held the fourth Tuesday of each month at a member home, featuring Jon Kabat-Zin's Wherever You Go There You Are. RSVP and you will be sent the program address.
 
Our “Managing Mindfulness” meeting is this Tuesday, July 24th at Joe and Pam’s house: 10am till noon—come closer to 9:30 for socializing : )
 
We’ll be reflecting on pages 171-184 in Wherever You Go There You Are—some very meaningful concepts for us to ponder with each other!
 
As you read and reflect on those pages, be looking for how those concepts relate to your own day to day life—for sharing/discussing in our meeting.
 
AND IF THIS WILL BE YOUR FIRST MEETING TO ATTEND:
 
1---It’s an opportunity for “real talk/discussion” about the difficulties most all of us share in modern life with being as mindful, as often, as we’d like.  It’s so, so easy to be “in our heads” regarding what did, or didn’t, happen and what may, or may not, happen, rather than simply experiencing “where we are right now." Our meetings are all about "being here now," of course—and sharing our successes and challenges in that quest : )
 
2---Jon Kabat Zinn's interview on CBS’s "60 Minutes” is below and well worth watching—it lasts about 25 minutes and gives a good overview!
 
 
3-Our meetings are such that whether or not you’ve had a chance to read the selection, you’ll still understand easily the concepts/experiences being discussed—it’s all very approachable and meaningful to our everyday lives : )
