Have you wondered how to incorporate mindfulness and meditation practices into your life? Do you worry that the only “right” way is to contort your body into uncomfortable (or unachievable) positions – and then stay that way for a long time? There are many ways we ALL can engage in increased mindfulness in our daily lives.
Lance Weinhardt will share an overview of what mindfulness is and isn’t, some of the benefits, and introduce a few 100% accessible mindfulness techniques each of us can use.
This session will also include a video by Fresh Lev White, a black trans activist for love and compassion, which will guide attendees through mindfulness-based gratitude.
