Our industrial, technological world stops at nothing. We no longer must follow the natural rhythms of the seasons, but in pre-modern times, winter was a time of rest and renewal. Can we allow ourselves to slow down and replenish ourselves at this cold, dark time of year?
During this session we will consider our schedules, to-do lists, and project deadlines and try to put them in perspective. Are we making time to replenish our bodies and minds? Can we attend to any personal inner work that needs doing? What seeds of life, creativity, and hope are we sheltering that they may germinate and flourish for us in the coming year?
We will begin with a guided meditation, followed by opportunities for self-examination and discussion of our need for rest and renewal. Attendees are invited to share their own life experiences and lessons with the group.
All are welcome in the spirit of compassion as we seek to support one another toward greater well-being.
Each month we explore a different aspect of mindfulness and its associated practice from a secular humanist and naturalist perspective — drawing on the experience and wisdom of participants. This month’s session is facilitated by Humanist Celebrant, Audrey Kingstrom.
