Location Carl Ridd Sanctuary – Bryce Chapel
Details Free Mindfulness Meditation Drop-In Sessions

“Mindfulness is paying attention to what is happening in the moment. The idea is to deliberately slow down and observe our thoughts, feelings and body sensations that we are already experiencing and holding our emotions so that they don’t sweep us away. With this quality of attention, we develop more awareness, resilience and compassion of ourselves and surroundings.”  (Mindfulness Without Borders)

All are welcome to the FREE Mindfulness Meditation Drop-In Sessions each Wednesday, May 2 to June 13, 2018, 12:30 to 1:00 p.m. in the Bryce Hall Chapel.

How the mindfulness meditation will go:

Each participant introduces her/himself by first name
A short reading of approx. 5 min will take place – the goal is to provide you an opportunity to separate yourselves from your busy morning and enter a more calm, peaceful environment which sets the mood for meditating
Invitation of the bell three times to commence the 20 minute meditation and three times to end the meditation.
A few minutes to comment, ask questions, etc.

Posture – most of us will be sitting in a chair.  Ensure your back is straight, shoulders are relaxed, chin is level (not pointing up or out), feet are firmly on the floor (not crossed, or tucked under, etc.) your hands relaxed by your side/on lap or your left hand resting in your cupped right hand with your thumbs touching and eyes closed or open looking down in front of you.

There is a bcc email list of UW meditators – if you’d like to be on the list please email Barb at b.read@uwinnipeg.ca
