Adult Education: A Case for Mindfulness
- Date: Sunday, September 29, 2019
- Time: 9:00am–10:15am
- Location: Library
Mindfulness practice has become widespread in society. More and more people are turning to this ancient spiritual technique of “being present.” But why? In the documentary, Mindfulness Goes Mainstream, produced by public television station WGBH Boston (2017), we will hear from scholars, researchers, and actual practitioners of mindfulness. They document and testify to the benefits accrued by living more mindfully. Some of the outcomes include overall health and well-being, reduction of stress and anxiety, enhancement of performance and focus, and more compassion and empathy toward others. University of Maryland Professor Laurie Cameron writes, “We practice mindfulness not to become masterful meditators, but to have a better life.” Led by Brenda Logue.
A time of learning and lively discussion, led by our pastoral staff, guest speakers, and members of the congregation. Join us as we explore a range of diverse topics and issues of the day from a theological perspective. Child care is provided.
