Join us to learn about meditation and mindfulness. Each session includes a check-in about our experience of the past week, a guided meditation practice for 15-20 minutes, and the opportunity to discuss any questions or insights. Each week explores a different mindfulness practice including breath awareness, guided imagery, artistic expression, and other activities that the group wishes to learn together. No experience necessary – whether you are new to meditation or already engaging in regular reflection, having the support of a group can help to strengthen your practice.
Open Circle’s Reflection Circle Guidelines:
