After Work Office Meditation
Monday, Jun 5, 2017
We continue our Office meditation series, with the Walking meditation segment. This is part of a Mindfulness practice, where we slow down time, and observe every movement that is happening in our bodies. By practicing "full presence", we are better able to understand our feelings, emotions and can distance our mind from all the daily interruptions. Clear your mind for more clarity, and efficiency at work and home! Join us to learn this insightful practice, which you can easily implement into your day, or also use to connect more with nature/mother earth as summer arises.
