Mindfulness Practice Group Session

The mindfulness group will continue on zoom every Wednesday at 3.30 pm. during the summer. In addition, we will be having some discussions about various aspects of mindfulness in different locations.  Everyone is welcome.  If you have questions, this is a great opportunity to get some answers!  Below is the schedule. 

Everyone is invited to bring your own chair to enjoy various discussions about mindfulness practice in the coming summer months. You can stay for as long or as little as you wish. Here is a list of gatherings that we have arranged: June 3rd. 2.00p.m

Early September
Visit to Heather’s on Quadra Island to enjoy the fruits of her farm and discuss how the beauty of the natural world enables us to become more mindful. Details to follow later.

Meeting on a weekly basis, the aim of the group is to create a peaceful atmosphere to foster a deeper awareness of the presence of God in everything we do in our daily lives.  Drawing from the major faith traditions, mindfulness practice is a spiritual discipline, designed to help us live more fully in the present moment, by noticing ourselves and our surroundings with purpose and intention. The group format will include breathing exercises, meditations and a short discussion of specific mindfulness skill.  If you are looking to expanding your spiritual horizons or want to spend time in a peaceful environment, please consider giving this group a try.
