[WEBCAST] Being Fully Alive: Mindfulness Meditation for Difficult TimesVIEW EVENT DETAILS
Please join Asia Society Northern California and Max Erdstein, Asia 21 Young Leader (Class of 2006), on Tuesday, June 2 for a guided morning meditation and talk about how mindfulness practice may support our ability to navigate the uncertainty and difficult emotions that arise from life during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Mindfulness is the simple practice of being aware, being present in this moment for what's happening. When developed and strengthened, mindfulness supports a deeper understanding and acceptance of ourselves and the world. As we develop confidence in the possibility of fully experiencing our life, without grasping or resisting, we open to the whole range of our own feelings and humanity. From this place of wholeness, we can respond wisely to others and live in the world with greater ease, insight, and compassion.
