Weekly Sunday 10am meditations
Happy 2021! Join us for weekly Sunday 10am (MST) meditations

Welcome back and here’s to a year of health, happiness, ease and prosperity for you and your loved ones, in spite of the stress of current times.

Just a quick note to let you know that our weekly free community meditation resumes on Zoom at 10am on Sundays starting this Sunday, January 10, 2021.

Looking forward to sitting in practice with you on Sunday mornings.

All workshops / courses available online – corporate, educational, institutional

Reminder that all our classes, workshops, sessions etc–for institutions, corporations, schools, charities and more: all are available online currently if you are not able to host a socially distanced workshop within your facility. YES of course it’s better in person, but at this time, people are in great need of self-reliant mental health and wellness and working online is better than pushing on in flight-fight until “the pandemic is over”.

What can Calgary Mindfulness offer your group? Our most popular right now is a 1 hour workshop & practices – introduction to meditation – how it can help you, and several short practices that you can do on your own at home, at work, with your family, while driving, washing dishes and so on. Each workshop comes with ongoing support, where we can meet for 15 minutes each week on your virtual platform / our Zoom room to reconnect, providing fellowship and support for this practice.

Do we need fellowship and community to make this work? You bet. Most people are not accountable without the support of a community to challenge us to be highest and best. Let’s be that community for one another, and be a light in this stressful time, setting the best example we can for our colleagues, family, friends, loved ones, and strangers.

Contact us today for your booking.

Kind regards, Rosanna

In-Person Meditations on Hold UFN

Support your mental health & wellness for free, without gimmicks–just discipline and habit!

Hi everyone, boo hoo but since the Alberta government is recommending that we voluntarily limit our cohort size, and with gatherings capped at 15, until further notice, we will continue to meet weekly online rather than in person monthly… contact me for the Zoom link (every Sunday 10am) and always check the podcast page for the previous week’s post… http://calgarymindfulness.ca/podcasts/

Reminder – weekly podcasts posted

Hello fellow meditation practitioners, beginners or advanced! A reminder that the weekly podcast is posted to the Podcasts page; I invite you to stream or download. Many requests for mindfulness-meditation based stress reduction strategies in this new normal, the Covid age, so this is where our focus has been in the last several classes.

We meet in person monthly, last Sunday of the month at 10:30, at MidSun centre, and weekly online at 10am Sundays on Zoom. Please contact me for the details.

Thanks! Rosanna

New! School-wide mental health & wellness workshop

Mental Health & Wellness Workshops

Presenting our new affordable and comprehensive wellness workshop, We Choose Wellness & Strength.

Highlights:

The focus of this short school-wide workshop is introducing mindfulness meditation as a cornerstone of self-reliance, self-regulation and self-knowledge. Students leave with an introduction to the physiological manifestation of stress, relaxation, several short and easy meditations, and a knowledge of the benefits of mindfulness practice, and teachers have tools to continue the work after facilitator is done!

  • 30 min workshop per class, 1.5 hours teacher training. Can be spread over a few days as scheduling permits, and for teacher training, this can take the place of a weekly staff meeting.
  • student activity handouts, home assignments, teacher manual provided so that staff can carry on to introduce modules after the workshops.
  • Can be hosted virtually or in person as regulations permit.
  • Please write or call to request full brochure with pricing sample handouts etc.

Annoucement about autumn 2020 schedule

Hello! Many are writing about fall…will we meet in person, online? We can do both. If in person, we will resume at MidSun Centre, or if it’s warm, in the adjacent field to better enjoy the outdoors. We will need to practice social distancing & other safety protocols, of course.

But there is no reason we can’t continue online also; many of our colleagues from the online class don’t live in Calgary’s south end, so I am happy to offer both.

At this time, please contact me with your scheduling requests so I can work it all out.

Thanks! Rosanna
