Introduction to Mindfulness: Nourishing Ourselves in These Times
In light of the COVID crisis, this Zoom presentation blends learning, participant sharing and brief practices: straw breathing, gentle stretching, guided meditation, silent sit and gratitude. Emphasis is on strengthening our collective immune system and our responsibility (response+ability) to sharpen self-regulation skills in service to the Greater Good.
Facilitator: Madeleine Charney is a Research Services Librarian at UMass Amherst. She is co-editor of Recipes for Mindfulness in Your Library: Supporting Resilience and Community Engagement (ALA, 2019) and works passionately to support healthy climate-soil-people-food.
