"A Day of Mindfulness"
with Maureen Lauer-Gatta and Dena Deluco

 

 The Challenge
Our world is in turmoil. War, outrage, political polarity, terrorism... the list can seem endless. There are over 7 billion people on our planet. Most sleepwalk through life, unaware of the gift the Present Moment brings. Our minds have been conditioned to:  Relive and regret the past over and over again, Suffer because the parts of our lives we love – people, youth, vibrance, etc.– have faded or gone away. Worry about the future, try endlessly to find happiness, success and self-worth, push away negative thoughts, only to have them cycle back more powerfully than before.
The Solution
What about those who roll with what life brings... who are calm in the midst of chaos?  What magical gifts do they possess? How do you remain grounded and collected in such challenging times?
Enter - The Present Moment
In A Day of Mindfulness, we will explore and apply such practices as: sitting quietly, following our breath, walking meditation, relaxing our body and mind, eating mindful, and practicing easy yoga. Each time you uncover the peace within you’ it becomes more natural to access. The tools and practices you learn in our precious time together will easily integrate into your daily life.

Maureen has a knack for creating a comfortable, calming atmosphere for people to heal and grow whether it is through yoga, workshops, retreats or drum circles she facilitates. She has been practicing yoga since 1999, teaching since 2003 and training yoga teachers since 2005.
