The Getting to Wise Mind Activity is open to all glocals.com members. It is an open group (members can come and go) with about 15 to 20 participants. Enrollment is through Glocals.com at: http://www.glocals.com/things-to-do/events_view/geneva/69090.htm
or directly contact David Lawson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The idea is that at our group meetings we each read a story from any book or inspiration of our own choosing. It can be very short, just a paragraph if you want. If you don’t want to read anything, that’s also just fine!
We then ask the following questions to the group:
What does this story say about yourself?
How is it relevant to you and your life?
We each take about 5 minutes to reflect and share.
You might be amazed at what everyone comes up with being relevant to them-selves!
It’s not all work though – we’re especially mindful to good wine and eating!
The location details will be announced shortly.
Looking forward to welcoming you to next meeting.
Mindfulness in its totality has to do with the quality of awareness that a person brings to everyday living; learning to control your mind, rather than letting your mind control you.
Mindfulness as a practice directs your attention to only one thing, and that one thing is the moment you are living in.
When you recognize the moment, what it looks like, feels like, tastes like, sounds like – you are being mindful.
Further, mindfulness is the process of observing, describing, and participating in reality in a non-judgmental manner, in the moment and with effectiveness. At the same time, mindfulness is the window to acceptance, freedom, and wisdom.
