A Soulful Introduction to Mindfulness
Fridays, 8:15am - 9:30am (Pacific Time)
October 15th - November 19th
6 weeks, online via Zoom
$100 for full course -or- $20/week
Our 6-session flagship mindfulness class. All sessions will be hosted live on Zoom and facilitated by Dr. Shelly Harrell.
Core mindfulness teachings and practices will be presented with emphasis on mindfulness as a path to mental and emotional liberation, as well as a foundation for collective liberation from oppression. Particular attention is given to the relevance of mindfulness for BIPOC and oppression-related experience. Practicing mindfulness regularly can help us be more resilient, feel more peace and balance, live more aligned with our values in our daily lives, as well as provide a grounding for the manifestation of our highest aspirations and purpose, both personally and collectively.
Dr. Shelly Harrell created this course for grounding, resourcing, healing, and connection. She offered it a number of times in 2020, within the context of profound loss and change brought on by the COVID-19 and ongoing racism pandemics. In 2021, we’re continuing to grieve, heal, and free ourselves from the grasp of these pandemics. The course is rooted in the Vipassana insight meditation tradition and is delivered with a soulful vibe that reflects an African diasporic sensibility and diverse cultural resources.
