MINDFULNESS for INTENTIONAL WELLBEING
with Anjali Rose
Sundays: Feb 28 & March 14
3-4:15pm • Zoom

The deacons at JCC have crafted this two-part series with Anjali Rose to provide a free self-care and mindfulness experience for our faith community. This experience is open to all. Friends and members welcome.

What is Mindfulness and how better might we use this technique to create well-being in our community and lives? 

During this Mindfulness for Intentional Well-being (2 part series),  Anjali Rose, MEd. 500 RYT, RMT will guide us in exploring the nuances of mindfulness, focusing on the subtle differences each of us can attain in creating awareness for healthy living.   Mindfulness means maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, emotions, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment with openness and curiosity.

It has a variety of research-backed impacts, including reduction in stress, and improvements in job satisfaction, emotional regulation, and focus.Mindfulness is a state, a trait, and a practice.

Mindfulness can be thought of a “state,” a “trait” or a “practice.” You can have a moment of mindfulness, which is the state of your mind. You can also have a sustained experience that is more like a habit or strong tendency to be mindful, a trait. Or you can engage in a more intentional practice of mindfulness by using different forms, postures and activities, such as seated mindfulness meditation, mindful walking, and mindful eating.
