7/15/2017 7:26:00 AM July Mindfulness: 'Staying cool when you are hot'
Ministry Koller Behavioral Health, part of Ascension, offers a monthly Mindfulness program in Rhinelander that is free to anyone in the community.
"Staying Cool While You Are Hot" is the featured program for July and will be offered on Tuesday, July 18, from 1 to 2:30 p.m. and Tuesday, July 20 from 5 to 6:30 p.m., according to a Ministry press release.
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.
"When people are being mindful, they often describe themselves as having a calm awareness," said Kathy Mitchell, MA of Ministry Koller Behavioral Health. "Participants in this month's program will learn what bringing a cool and aware mind can do to help navigate states of impatience, anger, irritability, and frustration."
Ministry Koller Behavioral Health also offers the Riverside Meditation Group every other Thursday each month. The next session is set for July 27 from 5:30 to 7 p.m.
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 is a short talk focusing on enhancing skills of mindfulness and medtation. The Riverside Meditation Group draws from western psychological mindfulness teachings, philosophy, literature, and poetry.
