“Mindfulness and Thanksgiving: Finding Gratitude…”

November 15, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

“Mindfulness and Thanksgiving: Finding Gratitude…”

In approaching Thanksgiving, how might the Spiritual Practice of Mindfulness awaken in us a sense of gratitude for simply being alive?
Mindfulness is the awareness that develops when we pay attention on purpose, in the present moment, without judgment, to the way things are.

We live in a fast paced world, with the power of habit-driven behavior often robbing us of peace. We can miss being Grateful for the very things that bring Joy.

The question is: how do we ‘wake up in our life?’
There is a natural development of Gratitude and Joy as we become aware of the inner resources already present within us.

Come join us for an Evening of Mindfulness Practice: an engagement in rediscovering Gratitude
and Joy… a great “Thanksgiving appetizer!”

When: Wednesday Evening, November 15, 2017: 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.

Location: Fr. Jack Wall Mission Center, 711 West Monroe, 2nd Floor # 25 AB.
