Discover inner calm as we read a classic mindfulness book together and explore ways to cultivate peace within ourselves and peace in the world. Peace is Every Step, by Thích Nhất Hạnh, instructs new students, and deepens more experienced practitioners, on methods of meditation, conscious breathing, and opening to increased awareness through being more conscious of present moment-to-moment experiences. This can help improve relationships, reduce emotional reactivity, and increase overall feelings of joy, happiness, and peace. Meet in person at Life in Balance for this free event that is open to all levels of interest. No background in mindfulness is required.
How the discussion group works: We will read the book throughout the month of May, and gather to discuss the book, how it relates to your life, and how you can implement what you learn in your life, on three occasions. Each meeting will conclude with a Thích Nhất Hạnh-inspired guided meditation practice led by Dr. Alan Forrest.
