Welcome the New Year with Mindfulness Together!

January 12, 2023 12:15 pm - 1:45 pm
CEW+, 330 E. Liberty Street, Ann Arbor, MI

Welcome 2023! Kick off the New Year with in-person, mindfulness meditation practices designed to foster an attitude of beginner’s mind, gratitude, and compassion while building community in a supportive environment.

The afternoon will include guided and silent meditation practices, a community reception with light refreshments, and an optional personalized art project aimed to seed intention for 2023. 

Come to the session with an open, curious mind, dressed comfortably, and actively invite a time of being, and not doing. A space to replenish, restore and re-energize your body and mind.

This program is designed to engage all, no previous experience with meditation is required. Questions and conversation to encourage your individual practice are encouraged. Stay as long as you can!

“Mindfulness is awareness that arises through paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgmentally, in the service of self-understanding and wisdom.” ~ Jon Kabat-Zinn

“The benefits of a regular mindfulness practice — increased focus, reduced stress, greater health and wellbeing, and more joy — can be yours, starting right now.” ~ Rhonda Magee
