“Arrive up to 15 minutes early to make a cup of tea, have a snack, and connect with others.
2-5 minutes to stretch, settle in, and find a comfy place in the group room.
5-10 minutes to check in and set intentions.
10-15 minutes of teacher talking on a topic to inform mindfulness practice.
20-25 minutes of guided meditation practice in seated, lying down, or standing posture.
5-10 closing with journaling reflections and Q&A with the teacher.
The meditation instruction may direct standing, sitting, or laying down posture. The meditation posture is to allow for relaxation without falling asleep. While it is common to feel some discomfort during sitting meditations, caring for yourself is welcomed. Variations, moving around and changing positions are highly encouraged in order to get the most from the practice!”
