Cultivating Equanimity and Compassion through Journaling and Meditation
Saturday, September 17, 10 AM – 12 PM, Baltimore
In a world that can seem increasingly overwhelming at times, being able to find your own center can help you gain clarity about what you want and need in your life. It can also help you be more compassionate in the way you treat yourself, and the way you feel about others. In this two hour experiential workshop, learn about the benefits of both mindful communication and meditation as well as journaling, and try a few different exercises to help you experience these benefits yourself. No experience in writing, journaling or meditation are necessary. Bring a notebook or journal, or laptop, and something to write with. For more info., click here.
