Drop-In Meditation Session: Overcoming Obstacles to Compassion
taught by Diane Hetrick
Tuesday, December 6, 2016, 6:00 - 7:00 pm
CCFW is pleased to offer monthly drop-in meditation sessions. A different CCFW instructor will lead each month’s session so that participants can experience different mindfulness practices and instructor styles. These sessions are also intended to support participants from previous mindfulness courses in strengthening their home practice. All levels of experience are welcome.
Please note: June - August we will have two meditation sessions per month. Starting in September, each session is on the first Tuesday of the month.
About the Session
The number one obstacle to our experience of cultivating compassion is 'being too busy' - 'too busy' to notice or to care or to think we have enough energy. At this typically 'busy' time of the year, join us for this session where we will invite in presence, patience and other wonderful qualities of mindfulness and compassion. We will practice an affectionate breathing practice and other wishes of compassion to ourselves and others.
