• Mindful Moment with Marjatta Moimas
 
Welcome back to Mindful Moment! 
 
This fall we will be exploring practices to help you develop your own daily mindful pause.  Participants will experience sitting meditation practices as well as gentle mindful walking and movement.  An opportunity to share insights, experiences, and questions will also be provided. 
 
All are welcome, no registration necessary.
 
Mindfulness meditation is about being in the present moment just as it is, non-judgmentally.  We develop this skill by practicing mindfulness meditation and its variations together, with great compassion toward ourselves. 
 
Wear comfortable clothes.  All practices can be done sitting on a cushion or a chair, standing, or lying down. 
 
Marjatta is a certified teacher of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) through the Center for Mindfulness, UMass Medical School.
 
Please note:  the door closes promptly at 6 p.m. to avoid disturbing the session.
