Discover Culture: Mindfulness Meditation workshop
Start your weekend morning at the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21’s Discover Culture: Mindfulness Meditation workshop. On Saturday, September 6 from 11:00 a.m. to 12 p.m., Carolyn Gimian will introduce participants to the practice of mindfulness meditation.
Skip your java jolt this Saturday and instead develop greater awareness through mindfulness meditation; a non-religious approach to this ancient practice which creates a foundation for creativity, joy, communication and clear-seeing.
Mindfulness meditation is the practice of simply being present in our bodies, relating to the coming and going of our breath, and being aware of the movements of our thoughts and emotions, without judgement or the need to “fix” ourselves. By relating to our own experiences with openness, simplicity and courage, we find that every state of mind can be clearly understood and cared for. Mindfulness turns the challenges we encounter into opportunities for personal and professional growth.
