SETTLE INTO THE MOMENT WITH A COMBINATION OF SOME GENTLY GUIDED AND SILENT PERIODS OF MINDFULNESS MEDITATION BY ELECTRIC CANDLELIGHT.
MINDFULNESS MEANS: PRESENT MOMENT, NON JUDGMENTAL AWARENESS. THIS IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO SETTLE INTO THE STILLNESS, BE PRESENT, AND ALLOW YOURSELF TIME TO JUST SIMPLY BE!
This class is for anyone, regardless of your experience with meditation: beginners to the more advanced.
Wear loose, comfortable clothes, bring along a yoga mat, pillows, blanket, cushion, etc. or anything else you may need for your comfort. Chairs are provided.
About the Instructor: Cecilia has been teaching meditation and mindfulness classes for the Town of Bedford for 6 years now. She also teaches the full 8-week traditional Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program as taught at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, where she received her training. In addition, Cecilia is a 23 plus year practitioner of both yoga and meditation. Those who have taken her classes are typically engaged by her enthusiasm, warmth and willingness to share her knowledge of mindfulness practices. Making people feel at ease by debunking the myths and iconic images of meditation is what keeps people coming back again and again to her classes.
