Mindfulness & Contemplative Practice
August 20 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, repeating until October 17, 2019
The intention of this 5-week course is to cultivate our capacity for deep listening and genuine connection. By recognizing the light and dark in our common humanity, participants are encouraged to develop habits of mind and heart that invite what Abraham Lincoln described as “the better angels of our nature” to show up and grow. When aligned with a sense that we’re all inextricably linked by a power greater than us, it’s possible to become rooted and grounded in love and belonging. This course, informed by neuroscience and positive psychology, is for anyone who is open to exploring contemplative practice, poetic inquiry, and meditation and as a portal to human connection and compassionate action.
Five consecutive Tuesdays, 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm, August 20, 2019 through September 17, 2019.
All classes will meet in Heritage Hall at Shallowford Presbyterian Church.
Tuition is $100 for this 5-week class offered through Shallowford Family Counseling Center.
