Mindfulness for Uncertain Times: The Shelter Within Ourselves – A monthly sitting group with Ellen Abrams, LMFT

January 16 @ 5:30 pm - 6:15 pm

$10 – $15

The 3rd Thursday of every month, 5:30-6:15


“We think that the point is to pass the test or overcome the problem, but the truth is that things don’t really get solved. They come together and they fall apart. Then they come together again and fall apart again. It’s just like that. The healing comes from letting there be room for all of this to happen: room for grief, for relief, for misery, for joy.”

― Pema ChödrönWhen Things Fall Apart: Heartfelt Advice for Hard Times


Developing and strengthening meditation practice during times of uncertainty offers us a place to land, and can offer us a shelter within ourselves to experience all that is happening on the inside and outside. Through both guided and silent meditation, we are invited to slow down, to pause, stay intimate with our experience using moment to moment awareness and kindness as our main tools.


For more Information contact Ellen Abrams –ellenabrams1@gmail.com or 607-387-8205. No registration necessary. Please arrive a few minutes before 5:30 to get settled. (Suggested fee $10-15)
