This program is designed to help you to stay connected to your practice by creating physical reminders of your “wisdom texts”, resources which gives you wisdom or deepen your clarity. “Wisdom text” can be actual texts like scriptures or teachings. They can also be a social media meme, a quote or text in your favorite books or any type of art. Select “wisdom texts” that you would like to bring into the physical world by putting them to paper. Select any creative activity to keep the wisdom text available as a reminder for your mindfulness practice. For example, bookmark with a quote, collage with pictures, calligraphy, and Zentangle. It could be a sticky note or a card. You could paint a rock or quilt a square! No artistic or materials ability required!
This program is composed of two sessions.
In session 1 on February 21, we will share the wisdom texts each of us selected in advance and our plans to put them to paper. Please bring up to 3 wisdom texts you intend to use as reminders to stay present.  Expect to leave this session with a plan to create your reminders to stay present.
In session 2 on February 28, we will share our progress with our reminders to stay present.

When you register for February 21, you are registered for both sessions on February 21 and 28.

Please note that the meeting on February 28 is 30 minutes longer and it will be from 9:30 to 11 am.

You will receive a zoom link for this class 60 minutes before the class starts. The zoom link will be sent directly to the email you registered with.
