What is mindfulness? Mindfulness is a form of light meditation where one sits quietly, paying attention on purpose, to the present moment, without judgment. In today’s world we are bombarded with unceasing demands for our attention. Meditation/mindfulness is proven to reduce stress and increase quality of life. Meditation, mindfulness, and prayer are closely related.
In these sessions, the instructors will offer a variety of methods to allow each participant to meditate, or be mindful, or pray as he or she likes. Seasoned instructors Robbie and John McQuiston will be leading the sessions. They studied under Mark Murse, Ph.D., and Manoj Jain, M.D., from Rhodes College, and will teach a variety of mindfulness styles. Sessions are FREE of charge. We will meet in Trezevant Hall for 15-20 minutes prior to each session for conversation and a brief lunch. Enter through the circle drive door on the west side of the church. You may bring your lunch if you wish. Sessions will begin at 12:20 p.m. in the chapel. Please register at tinyurl.com/GSLMindfulness. Drop-ins are welcome. No equipment is necessary.
