Ascension Koller Behavioral Health offers monthly mindfulness programs in Rhinelander that are free to anyone in the community.
"Mindfulness to Awaken the Senses" is the featured program for June and will be offered on Wednesday, June 5 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. and Thursday, June 20 from 5 to 6:30 p.m., at Ascension Koller Behavioral Health, 1020 Kabel Avenue in the second floor conference room. Advanced registration is not required.
"Mindfulness to Awaken the Senses will feature practices to use our senses: taste, touch, smell, sight and listening to increase awareness, attention, and appreciation," Kathy Mitchell, MA, of Ascension Koller Behavioral Health, said in a press release.
Ascension Koller Behavioral Health also offers the Riverside Meditation Group. In June, the Riverside Meditation Group will be held on Thursday, June 13 and 27, at 5:30 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 of the session a short talk focusing on enhancing skills of mindfulness and meditation is held.
The Riverside Meditation Group draws from western psychological mindfulness teachings, philosophy, literature, and poetry.
