Friday, Mindful Yoga, 5:00-6:15pm
Since 2002, The Monadnock Mindfulness Practice Center has provided the Keene, New Hampshire community a quiet environment to learn and practice mindfulness, the art of bringing one’s full attention to the present moment. Deepening this practice during meditation sessions –– as well as in daily life –– helps to develop a calm and openhearted approach to living through challenging times and circumstances. In addition, the practice of mindfulness enhances clarity, deepening our understanding of self and others while opening the capacity to make a positive difference in the world around us.
Open four days a week, the Center has welcomed as many as 1200 people a year. Individuals who attend sessions come from all walks of life in our community. Basic instruction is provided for all levels of experience with meditation. Sessions are one hour with the first 45 minutes spent in silent meditation, followed by a 15 minute period for optional discussion or continued meditation. Chairs, cushions and benches are provided.
The Center is funded by donations of the participants. No one will be turned away for lack of adequate funds.
