Practicing Mindfulness with Origami (with Adam from the Crane Collective)

The Crane Collective teaches people who struggle with meditation, origami as a pathway to mindfulness and community. Our workshops encourage us to breathe through each fold of of the model the same way we breathe through the folds of life, particularly the difficult folds. Participants will be taught how to mindfully create one or many beautiful origami cranes and are then encouraged to give these cranes to a stranger without any thought or expectation of return. This process symbolizes the passing on of our love and intentionality to the community, fostering a sense of connectedness and giving to our world and those we share it with.

We will practice origami from 4:30-6:30 and will then have another hour afterward for anyone who would like to stay and mingle or discuss!
