Mindfulness is choosing to be present with things as they are in this moment. Mindfulness helps us meet whatever is here with an attitude of curiosity and kindness. The experience might be something pleasant, like tasting a delicious bite of a favorite food or seeing a sparkling dewdrop on a flower petal, or it might be something unpleasant, like smelling a skunk, or hearing the on-going sound of a car alarm.
As we focus our attention, we can meet whatever is here with openness and interest, thus creating the space for a more flexible and creative response. With this response, we are able to grow and to discover new possibilities for living with increased ease, kindness, and joy.
Join other experienced practitioners of mindfulness to continue to develop your practice and your understanding of mindfulness and compassion.
The group meets Wednesdays, 6:00 until 8:00 PM. The next meeting will be Wednesday June 20. Please also mark your calendar for Wednesday July 18 and Wednesday August 16.
We meet at the Dennis Memorial Library, 1020 Old Bass River Road, Dennis 02638. This just off Route 6A. Directions here: www.dennismemoriallibrary.org/directions

Cost: $25-35 or pay what you are able. Nobody will be turned away.
