Greetings Mindful friends,

We are so excited to begin our new schedule this coming month. Every week there is something special and just one more reason (if you need another) to pay attention to your life’s adventure. Each event is hosted by a different partner and gives you a unique slant for your explorations of mindful living.

WEEK 1: BMINDFUL and Red Maple Sangha get together to host a session of mindful eating practice. Based on the traditional Japanese practice called oryoki (eating just enough) we will learn to combine mindfulness with a common human activity (1st Saturday at 10.00am)
WEEK 2: BMINDFUL’s AIM (Adventures in Mindfulness) group hosts a Mindful Living Discussion and Pot Luck where we share an evening meal and discuss a mindfulness topic introduced by Ray, such as generosity, relationships and mindfulness at work. (2nd Wednesdays, 6.00 pm)
WEEK 3: Our three partners take turns bringing you an extended mindfulness workshop (3rd Saturdays, 12.00-4.00pm)
WEEK 4: On the 4th Wednesday, BMINDFUL hosts our Get Reel film series where we explore how mindful living is portrayed in exceptional movies from all over the world. Films start at 6.00. Then on the Sunday of that 4th week, Padakun hosts its monthly Kick and Push Pedestrian Society (KAPPS) alk along the rail trails near Renfrew.

The schedule is posted here:

 Hope to see you out at one of our events soon.
Yours ,                        
Mindful Living in Renfrew County
What’s got your attention?
