Rational Mindfulness Group

Life can be so stressful—it really helps to learn and practice evidence-based techniques to manage stress and to become more compassionate. Especially for non-believers, it is important to do so in a science-friendly, rational atmosphere.

The Rational Mindfulness Group supports secular people in using scientifically-informed mindfulness and meditation practices to reduce stress, sharpen thinking, calm emotions, and enhance compassion. Our meetings combine various types of meditation, yoga (stretching), readings, and discussions. It’s a great place for both those who want to learn how to meditate and become more mindful, and for those with some experience who want to try out new techniques and meet like-minded folks.

For more information on rational, evidence-based mindfulness, see the webpage of the Humanist Mindfulness Group at the Humanist Community at Harvard.  (http://harvardhumanist.org/harvard/humanist-mindfulness-group/)

    The driving and all I have to do makes me feel I will be wisest to stay in Reynoldsburg today.

      And I'm disappointed about it--this is a splendid meeting.

    Turns out I'll be working 10-4 on Sunday, so I won't be able to make it after all. :-(

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
