We get really caught up in the busyness of life. We are living in an overstimulated world and if we don’t take time to stop, decompress and process then we start to fall apart. Through the month of January our Wednesday night mini series classes are focused on mindfulness. What does mindfulness even mean? In simple terms, it means to pay attention to your present moment. It’s a practice that brings us back home to ourselves, underneath all the distractions life presents to us. In this class we are gently reintroducing ourselves back to our breath and finding a path underneath the incessant merry-go-round of our thoughts. When we don’t give ourselves a chance to be quiet and integrate the experiences of our life then we begin to live in a chronic state of stress, we can move through our lives on auto-pilot, and the effects are profound. We see it in our relationships, in the way we communicate, in our health, in our sleep, in our overall energy levels. By simply slowing down we start to reverse these effects and become healthier, happier and calmer. Please join us as we journey back into the simple experience of a deep full breath, some quiet time in stillness, and gentle slow mindful movement. For our Wednesday night classes, from 6 – 7:15 pm, you can either sign up for the full series, or simply drop in for any of the evenings in the series. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to reach out.
Thank you so much to everyone who came out for our recent Karma Classes over the holidays. It was truly beautiful to hold space for you, you continue to be held in our hearts. We are all in this together, and the generosity and support of our community really helped to bring that home this holiday. On Christmas eve, thanks to all of you, we delivered 8 bags of toiletries and other needs for the women and children being supported in safety at Interval House. We also raised over $300 in financial support for them. Thanks to all of you, we have filled up our food basket again, and have a financial contribution for The Hunger Stop, Lanark County Food Bank. We have much to reflect on from the past year, and so much to be grateful for. We look forward to continuing to support our community in the years to come. We are here in service.
