NOW ONLINE: Meditation Mix: Embracing Presence with Mike Goins August 18

8/3/2020 from 6:00 PM to 6:45 PM ET

Join us for an unique opportunity to explore a mix of meditation styles from five different instructors. Whether you are new to meditation or want to expand your existing practice, we designed this class to help you access various ways to connect with the present moment, gain a greater sense of self awareness and receive support from community. Each Monday of the month you will be guided by a new instructor through a meditation that is reflective of their practice and teachings.

Mike Goins will be offering Embracing Presence, a meditation aimed to provide space for individuals to safely practice mindfulness in a supportive setting where we promote compassion, kindness, and the development of personal self-awareness. The practice will include guided meditations, sitting in silence, mindful movement, and guided visualization. Each meeting will include discussion with the intent of supporting each other in our personal journeys.
