Mindful Astoria: Weekly Summer Meditation Gathering

Mindful Astoria: Weekly Summer Meditation Gathering

Join us on Wednesday nights this summer for meditation and conversation about mindfulness. Learn how to bring mindfulness into daily life, and how to establish, maintain, and deepen a personal mindfulness practice.

Each class will consist of instruction in different forms of mindfulness meditation, and time for group discussion and connecting with the community. Depending on the week, the teacher may give a talk or share a reading about a related topic such as working with distractions, mindful communication, compassion, working with emotions, bringing mindfulness to anxiety, home practice tips, mindfulness and social action, and more.

Main teacher: Emily Herzlin 
Guest teachers: To Be Announced (will be updated on the MeetUp page)

Every Wednesday, 7-8:30pm, June, July, and August 2014.

First Wednesday of each month we will be at the Astoria Bookshop
All other Wednesdays, we will be at the Astoria Presbyterian Church.

All classes are drop-in, but RSVP if you are able. $5-$10 at the door to support the teachers, the Astoria Bookshop, and the Astoria Presbyterian Church. *Note that no one will be turned away for lack of funds. If you cannot afford the suggested donation, please give what you are able.
