A Mindful Moment with Marjatta Moimas
 
Join us for a drop-in meditation session, designed to offer a mindful pause in the midst of our busy and stressful lives.
 
Mindfulness meditation is about being in the present moment just as it is, non-judgmentally.  We develop this skill by practicing mindfulness meditation and its variations together, with great compassion toward ourselves. 
 
Wear comfortable clothes.  All practices can be done sitting on a cushion or a chair, standing, or lying down. 
 
Marjatta is a certified teacher of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) through the Center for Mindfulness, UMass Medical School.
 
No registration necessary.
