Meditation Class NH

 A Taste of Mindfulness Meditation Practice Group

BYPC: Bedford Youth Performing Company
155 Route 101 and Bell Hill Road Bedford, NH

DATE: Sunday July 20th, 2014
(New Monthly Sunday Dates Posted Each Month on this Site) 

TIME: 10 AM to 11:15AM
  
Our room is located in the REAR of the building at BYPC, the Bedford Youth Performing Company, lower level, so follow the painted arrows indicating how to enter the parking lot. BYPC is located at 155 Route 101 and Bell Hill Road, Bedford, NH. Plenty of parking out back and if needed, up front on the second level. Enter through the back entrance door and we are just inside the foyer, to your right.

Whether you are new to meditation or more practiced, please come out and join our monthly Sunday practice group! This is a fun, relaxed and comfortable group of like-minded individuals who come together each month to learn how to meditate, reinforce their mindfulness practice or to discover something new about meditation. So, it is a time for both discovery and insight about yourself and your practice. 

Each month we will alternate with a variety of guided meditations, silent sitting time, gentle mindful stretches, and perhaps a walking meditation or reading relevant to mindfulness. Please try to be on time as we start promptly at 10AM. If you arrive late, enter quietly and find a seat. Turn all cell phones off or place on vibrate.


The format for the class allows ample time for Q and A at the conclusion of the meditation(s) and is also a time for you to discuss anything related to the morning practice. You do not have to stay for the Q&A portion, which occurs around 11AM, but can leave at this time.


Regular attendance truly does make a difference, however please come join us any time you are able to schedule the time. If that means one Sunday every few months  or so, that's perfectly fine! Please feel free to bring anyone along with you anytime as well.



PLEASE NOTE: Donations, in any amount, are requested of all participants at the conclusion of our time together.  I do not charge a set fee, but I do share half of what is in the box each Sunday with BYPC for lending me the room, free of charge. Needless to say, I retain the other half for myself. What you leave is entirely up to you, but please note I give BYPC something regardless of what is in the box. Plus, if you like all that I am doing, teaching and guiding, your donation lets me know this as well! 

Thank you all for taking this into consideration when you come out to practice and reflect this in your donation. It is SO deeply appreciated and helps me to know that the time I give to provide this practice is in fact, appreciated in return!

ANNOUNCEMENT:

I am hosting a "Morning Mindfulness Retreat" on Sunday June 22nd, 9AM to 12:30 PM (There will be no Taste of Mindfulness Practice group in June due to this Morning Retreat)  Same location, BYPC. This is a wonderful way to immerse yourself in the practice of meditation, gentle mindful yoga/stretching, some mindful eating and journaling.

 If weather cooperates, we will go outside for a bit to further explore a mindfulness activity. 

 I plan on offering this "mini retreat" twice per year, so if you have to miss this one, look for one after the holidays, in early 2015.  

 Fee is $25 per participant and you need to email cbhoward@mac.com or call 603-801-8945 to register in advance. Space it limited, so register as soon as you are able to reserve a spot.

THANK YOU!!!!
