Free Meditation Workshop

May 25 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Meditation has been proven to: lower blood pressure, relieve stress, and help you cope with anxiety. It has also been shown to be very effective with chronic pain, insomnia, and panic disorder. The wonderful thing about meditation is that it can be used anywhere, even on the way to work and has no dangerous side effects. In this one session class you will learn this simple technique that can change your life. This class is based upon the work of Jon Kabat-Zinn of the Stress Reduction Clinic at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center.

Boundless Heart Class – Online

May 29 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Compassion, kindness, equanimity, and joy are not only the fruits of the awakened life but also the path to it—attitudes of mind that can be cultivated through intention and dedication. Also known as the brahma viharas (sublime abodes) and the “Four Immeasurables,” these enobling qualities are far more than simply the “feel-good” states they are often mistaken for. They must be pursued sincerely as a spiritual practice—not just as a means of getting a “spiritual high”—in order to experience the full extent of their power.

Joy of Mindfulness Summit:

I’m participating in this event in early June through Mindful Kansas City.

In order to expand awareness and stimulate interest in the Kansas City metro about the benefits of mindfulness for health and wellbeing, we are offering 5 days of mindfulness practices led by some of our area’s most experienced teachers.

This FREE event happening June 5-10, 2022, starts with a live panel discussion and Q & A Sunday from 7-8:30 pm. Then we invite participants to connect with joy, wonder or awe through daily, pre-recorded practices Monday through Friday. Each day begins with a short hosted introduction of the teacher(s) for that day. Videos will be available for 30 days on our platform so participants can enjoy them using a self-paced approach.

The Joy of Mindfulness Summit will be hosted on the Mindful Kansas City website.
