SC Hospice: The Circle – Meditation with Marlena Blavin

Meditation is a practice of giving deep attention to what is happening in the present moment – what is happening in the mind and body of the observer and also what is going on in our surroundings. Through these sessions, participants practice being mindful of the body, the breath, and the experience of physical changes that might be occurring. Participants leave how to become more mindful of their responses – the feelings that arise in reaction to pleasure or discomfort – and watching them appear and disappear. Meditation reduces stress, anxiety and depression, improving self-compassion and the spiritual well-being of people experiencing life-limiting illness and their caregivers.

I will provide the microwave for heat setting, as well as 3 ironing stations to heat set the dyes.
