6/17/2017 7:23:00 AM June Mindfulness: 'Meditation and Mindfulness'
Ministry Koller Behavioral Health, part of Ascension, offers a monthly Mindfulness program in Rhinelander that is free to anyone in the community.
"Meditation and Mindfulness" is the featured program for June and will be offered Tuesday, June 20 from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Both sessions will be held at the Ministry Riverside Clinic at 1020 Kabel Avenue, Rhinelander in the second floor conference room. Advanced registration is not required.
"Practicing Mindfulness is part of an ongoing series of mindfulness programs that allows participants to learn and review how to use mindfulness to increase stability, awareness, and ease," Kathy Mitchell, MA of Ministry Koller Behavioral Health, said in a press release. "This program will include both a number of accessible practices and explain why they have such a positive effect."
Ministry Koller Behavioral Health also offers the Riverside Meditation Group every other Thursday each month. The next session is set for 5:30 to 7 p.m. June 29.
Riverside Meditation Group is an opportunity for anyone with a meditation practice to have regular group support. There are two 20-minute seated meditations with either walking meditation or Qigong in between. The meditation model is silent and still with occasional guided meditations. At the end a short talk focusing on enhancing skills of mindfulness and meditation. The Riverside Meditation Group draws from western psychological mindfulness teachings, philosophy, literature, and poetry.
