Mindfulness is the art of paying attention, of listening to your heart. Rather than worrying about the future or ruminating about the past, mindfulness can help you enjoy life more fully, effectively and peacefully. Join us when you can to learn simple mindfulness and meditation techniques that can be incorporated into your everyday routine to reduce your stress and increase your well-being. Experience in mindfulness or meditation is not necessary. The group is led by Gloria Green.

Witnessing Whiteness Workshop
Join us for a 10-week workshop based around the Book Witnessing Whiteness: The Need to Talk About Race and How to Do It by Shelly Tochluk, facilitated by Gera Raymond and Ruth Meyer. This series is designed for white people to forward anti-racism work. We will connect the book with dialog and experiential activities, by exploring the white experience.
Goals of the series are to build a community with a shared understanding of privilege, whiteness, and racism; increase your ability to begin, support, and progress racial justice work; and
To really understand and ultimately address how whiteness affects racism, a strong commitment to attendance is required. Sessions 1 and 10 are mandatory. We ask that any absences are pre-planned; maximum number of absences is 2. At Session 1, we will ask you to let us know the dates you plan to miss, if any. The series is limited to 25 participants.
