Join me for a walk and meditation ITP!
***This event was originally scheduled for May 7, but had to be cancelled and has been rescheduled for May 21.***
WHEN: Sunday, May 21, 2017 at 6:30 - 7:45 pm
WHERE: Grant Park Recreation Center
We’ll meet to enjoy a leisurely walk through the park together and discuss the benefits and myths of meditative practice. The 30 minute meditation will include a chance to appreciate the beautiful setting and a guided meditation focusing on self-compassion.
This event is designed with beginners in mind but is open to all! Come as you are, leave refreshed!
In order to maintain the integrity of this event, spots are limited so that all can hear the guided meditation. You must register for a free ticket in advance to reserve your spot.
You do not have to be a Zen master to meditate. You don't have to say "ohms" or find a way to "think about nothing." We are wired to create thousands of thoughts a day - eliminating them completely is impossible. Meditation is a form of mindfulness with the simple of goal of being aware, whether of your thoughts, your body, or your surroundings. If nothing else, just think of this as a time to unplug, be thankful, and find a moment of peace outside of the city.
WHAT TO BRING:
A yoga mat, blanket, or pillow/cushion is recommended since we'll be sitting on the ground for about 30 minutes. Make sure you are able to carry it for a short walk. Water & sunscreen may be a good idea too. Basically, bring & wear whatever you need to be comfortable.
