This series will teach mindfulness through meditation to help you get in touch with your body and what is going on in the present moment.
According to Plumvillage.org, “Mindfulness is a kind of energy that we generate when we bring our mind back to our body and get in touch with what is going on in the present moment, within us and around us. We can be mindful while standing, walking or lying down; while speaking, listening, working, playing and cooking."
Chairs and mats will be available. Participants are invited to bring their own mat and/or a meditation cushion if desired.
Nic Bellegarde teaches and facilitates mindfulness meditation classes and groups. He is originally from the Dallas Meditation Center, which practices mindfulness in the order of Thich Nhat Hanh, a world-renowned Vietnamese teacher. Nic is a member of the Order of Interbeing, a community of monks and laypersons who practice sitting and walking meditation, cultivating a community of harmony and present-moment awareness, and practice deep listening and loving speech.
