You are invited to sit in a chair during your mindfulness practice. Unity (on Stratford Rd) graciously hosts us, but this is not a religious event. *Your suggested donation of $5 - $20 is paid forward to others in our community who are working to create a more compassionate world. Please do not let money prevent you from attending, donations of any amount are welcomed if you are in a tight financial spot (as I have been in the past). 11:45 am: Arrival and settling in with music and gentle movement Noon: Short mindfulness teaching 12:15 pm: Guided, Loving Kindness Meditation (also called metta) 12:45 pm: Closing Comments and Take Aways 1:00 pm: Event ends and those who are interested bring a bagged lunch and enjoy it together at Unity's Kitchen table. Unity is located on Stratford Rd., but the GPS address is 108 Hewes St, Winston-Salem, NC 27103. It is 1 - 2 miles west of the intersection of Stratford and Hanes Mall Blvd, and is located next to a nursery/greenhouse. *Make sure you come to Unity, NOT the Unitarian Church on Robinhood Rd. Cheryl Schirillo-Johnson’s background/training: Cheryl is a community innovator, conduit and connector, President/CEO of Bridges Connecting Communities, Inc. and Founder of the Imagination Installations Project. She has studied mindfulness-meditation for the past 13 years with Integrative-Medicine Practitioners from Duke University, Buddhist Monks, Pacos from Peru and Native-American Shamans. Cheryl’s Mindfulness Consulting Practice was inspired by Otto Scharmer, Senior Lecturer at M.I.T’s Sloan School of Management and Co-Founder of the Presencing Institute. For the past three years she participated with Otto, and a local group of community innovators, in a world-wide course out of M.I.T. called U.Lab: a global movement to build a new economy by co-sensing and co-creating with the emerging future. She was inspired by Otto to offer mindfulness training in our community as a way support people who want to live healthier, more grounded, more heart-centered lives to promote world-wide healing for all beings. In addition to leading three, open to the public mindfulness circles each month (1st Mondays at Golden Flower on Trade St, 1st Tuesdays at Unity Church off Stratford Rd, and 2nd Friday's at 18 Springs, Cheryl also offers "Mindfulness at Work" Programs and Retreats for non-profits and businesses. • What to bring An open mind and heart. • Important to know Meditation can be a delicious and sensual practice. I look forward to meeting with you and practicing with you in circle. Namaste, Cheryl
