Mindfulness and Meditation Class
October 12 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Tuesday, repeating until December 7, 2021
Welcome to the Meditation and Mindfulness class!
Kate Lietz, a social work student at the Penn Memory Center, has created a 10-week program of meditation and mindfulness. On Tuesday mornings, we will explore short mindfulness exercises that can be done in a group and/or solo when you are at home. In this group, we hope to build a community and a basic understanding of how mindfulness can be integrated into your daily life. Mindfulness practices and exercises can help ease your stress, calm your mind, and ground you in the present moment.
We welcome all families and individuals affiliated with Time Out, Weekly Smile, and Penn Memory Center. Carers (caregivers and care partners) are also encouraged to join. We welcome all experience levels with meditation and mindfulness and will make the class accessible to those with cognitive impairment or dementia.
Schedule: The class will be live every Tuesday at 10:00 AM Eastern Time. The class will typically last an hour, until 11 AM. The class will start on Tuesday, October 5, 2021, and run for 10 weeks with the last class on Tuesday, December 7, 2021. You can join us at any time during the 10 weeks but make sure to RSVP!
