Outdoor Mindfulness Meditation

  • Three Sundays  at 8:00am / August 19th, 26th, and September 9th
  • Donation-based

Join us for a 30-minute Mindfulness Meditation in Swarthmore town center’s peaceful ampitheater. Bring your own coffee or tea and cushion or blanket to sit on if needed. Our meditations will mostly center around the breath, with the goal of staying present. There may be a thematic reading, or we may enjoy guided meditations like body scans. All ages welcome, and no experience is needed! Leave feeling more awake and alive, more able to manage stress and whatever arises.

“Every moment is incredibly unique and fresh, and when we drop into the moment, as meditation allows us to do, we learn how to truly taste this tender and mysterious life that we share together.”Pema Chödrön

Props like blocks and straps are used to help support, achieve, or deepen a pose.  Improve your balance with standing poses that use the chair for support, if it’s in your practice.

 We underline the importance of focusing on the breath, as breath-connected movement is essential for health and well-being, fusing mind and body.  Come refine your posture, improve balance, strength and flexibility – in a supportive and relaxing community environment. It’s called a “practice” because there is no “perfect” in yoga.forwardfold_strap_angles.jpg

This class means hope for me to have a better life! Sciatica pain had sapped my energy and I knew I couldn’t do most yoga poses. Chair yoga gives me relief; makes me feel stronger in body and mind. It’s something I look forward to. It’s a gift.” – Carol L.
