What are you really practicing ? Exploring the dynamics and dimensions of mindfulness . . .
Many different practices and perspectives fall under the heading of mindfulness, and yet these practices are strikingly different; cultivating a wide variety of world views and experiences and relationships to life and nature and being. As important as practice itself, the question “what are you really practicing?” is, perhaps, even more critical. This evening’s talk will be an exploration of the many dynamics and dimensions of mindfulness and its varied practices and outcomes. Saturday Evening September 13th Seven until eight-thirty Portland Friends Meeting House 1837 Forest Avenue in Portland
This talk is offered free of charge
