Yes, we’ve been hibernating. It’s the wise thing to do in an especially cold deep winter. Eventually though, we know we’ll start stirring, just like the trees, and the bears, and everything else in nature. We will enter that amazing and difficult time of transition: too late to ski; too mushy to ride a bike; too cold to garden. What to do? Why not make a commitment to wake up with Mindfulness practice? This year’s Winter Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Class will be held throughout the months of March and April 2014. The class teaches empirically supported meditation practices that help ease stress, increase awareness and foster overall contemplation and appreciation of life itself. Now’s the time to clear your schedule Tuesday evenings 6:00 to 8:30pm through the months of March and April. Basic orientation and registration materials are available (click here) For more information about the instructor, the class and the growing mindfulness community in our area, surf around on this site or contact Geri Wilimek at firstname.lastname@example.org.
