Mindfulness Meditation and Practice Circle for Black-Identified Practitioners

With Anne Roise

May 8 – June 5, 202;  Five Saturdays; on Zoom (link posted closer to event)

9:00  AM – 10:30 AM PT

This 5-session program provides a safe and supportive space for Black-identified people to begin, refresh and strengthen their mindfulness meditation and practice to support everyday experiences.  The sessions sequentially build on each other beginning with mindfulness of breathing, followed by mindfulness of the body, emotions, and thinking, and will conclude with a discussion on self-care in the midst of the current health pandemic, and social and racial injustices. The group’s time together will include meditation, facilitated discussion and an opportunity to share and connect with each other.
