Mindfulness for Exceptional Times: Showing up for Ourselves and Our World
In business since October, '18

- Review of the Basics + Daily Practice Support
- Mindfulness-Based Self-Care Practices
- Loving kindness and Compassion Practice for Self and All
- Gratitude and Joy as Antidotes to Despair/Overwhelm
- Showing up Mindfully for Our World
**Consider signing up with your teen (fee is per household)**
From the insecurity of a global pandemic to the incredible uprisings against injustice to the ever-present dangers of climate change and broken leadership, this is undeniably a huge and unwieldy time to be alive.
Will we disappear underneath our overwhelm or show up for ourselves and each other with love, clarity and purpose?
Mindfulness practice provides us with the tools necessary to stay present for all that is arising in both our external and internal realities, and to do the work to create discernment, spaciousness, kindness and understanding in a world that desperately needs us to wake up.
Participants will be supported in their practice with mid-week emails from Charity containing tips and inspiration, a meditation-buddy support system, and one 40-minute one-on-one session with Charity to be scheduled at your convenience.
It is wonderful, and necessary, to be in community for these practices and teachings.
