Meditation Hour - Tuesday Evenings via Zoom!
with IVY ROSS RICCI
Meditation Hour is for the beginning or seasoned practitioner to: cultivate an ongoing practice; strengthen an existing one; and learn more about mindfulness in a welcoming and kind environment where all experiences and questions belong.
As a participant, you will receive tools to awaken from habitual patterns of response in order to meet each moment afresh. We will practice mindfulness of breath, body, thoughts and emotions and look at ways of bringing our practice alive in the world. We will reflect upon challenges and triumphs, personal and collective, with wisdom and compassion.
Class entails a welcoming and intro, a 15 minute talk, a 15-20 minute guided meditation, and 10-15 minutes for Q&A at the end.
