• What we'll do - Have you heard of mindfulness? Mindfulness is the practice of being in the present without judgment. Check out this link to Sam Harris’ description of mindfulness: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iwac6Uk-zyk Here’s your opportunity to learn how to practice mindfulness meditation within a non-religious community. Mindfulness meditation research has shown to be very beneficial for our mental, emotional, and physical health. Come to have fun, learn, grow, and be a part of a new group of people…people who are present and living for this life – not the after life! This Mindfulness Group meets Sunday mornings to learn, practice, and share about Mindfulness. • Important to know Beginners are welcome. I will teach you about the mind/body connection, guide you through a meditation, and then we will have discussion and conversation afterward.
Join us for some lively conversation! IEAA members meet every Sunday morning for breakfast. We are a friendly group and welcome new members. Farmer Boy's Restaurant is located on the corner of University Ave. and the 91 Freeway in downtown Riverside. Their prices are reasonable and there is a patio outside where we sit, making for a nice, non-noisy location. Weather permitting we sit outside where friendly dogs on leashes are welcome. Look for the IEAA tee shirts if it is your first time to attend.
