Midday Meditation – Happiness Edition
February 24 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Every workshop will begin with a bit of gentle movement to nourish and relax the physical body, while helping to unwind from busy schedules. From there, we’ll explore various meditation techniques and learn how much strength lies in the ability to remain centered, as well as how we can begin to bring the practice of mindfulness into our everyday lives. You don’t need to bring anything to this session, although we recommend keeping a journal for reflection. We also encourage you to dress comfortably and to have as many props (pillows, blankets, etc.) as you need to help maintain comfort and support throughout the body.
Week 5: Happiness Meditation
This guided meditation will focus on cultivating happiness and a more compassionate attitude towards life, ourselves, and others.
Class will begin with a gentle movement component to bridge the connection between body, mind, and breath. We will then ease into a guided meditation to encourage the internal connection even further. In guided meditation, the practice is always led, making it a great starting point for beginners or for those who find it difficult to focus the mind.
Comfortable clothing is recommended as is a yoga mat, however, a blanket is also an appropriate substitute.
This event was made possible through funding from the Government of Alberta.
