A Free Community Workshop 
Introduction to Mindfulness
75 min | Free

Our bodies are never in the past or ever in the present yet our heads are rarely attached to our bodies. Our minds are often in the past ruminating about "what was" or in the future with varying levels of worry. This class will give you an introduction to Mindfulness. What it is, what are some of the benefits if you decide to begin a practice and what a practice looks like so you can truly begin to be more "present" in your life and in the lives of those you love.

Advance registration is required to join us and we have about 30 spaces available so don't hesitate to call the Beaumont Health and Fitness Center at 586-447-8080 or e-mail your name to hfcscs@beaumont.org and reserve your seat!

A Free Community Workshop 
The Power of Self-Compassion

I have to admit it. When I took a course in "Mindful Self-Compassion" a few years ago, I thought it would be 8-weeks of some serious "kumbaya stuff."

Was I proven wrong when I saw not only my views on this subject take a 180-degree turn but being witness to my fellow classmate's growth was astonishing!

Self-compassion is critical to living your best life. Learn more about why and how to implement more of it into your daily life at this class offering. This class has received very good feedback from past participants.

Advance registration is required to join us and we have about 30 spaces available so don't hesitate to call the Beaumont Health and Fitness Center at 586-447-8080 or e-mail your name to hfcscs@beaumont.org and reserve your seat!

I attended a "Seeking the Stillness" class and what a pleasant experience it was. I came away feeling inspired to bring meditation back into my life. Jennifer’s presentation was engaging and very informative. Jennifer warms up the room with her beautiful energy that makes it a comfortable space to open up and share your thoughts and ask questions.
 
The take ways were very helpful and I have already used some of them. I would recommend this session to anyone wanting to learn about meditation or to restart your meditation practice.
