A different kind of mindfulness group; a different kind of activism group. How so? This group is not about what we do, but about how we do it. There are many wonderful groups already working with new petitions and marches and voter registration and fundraising and other political actions, and we certainly support and are involved in many of these actions. But this group is about how we hold our sense of inner equanimity and compassion in this “sea of troubles.”
To this end, in our bi-monthly meetings we will include a period of mindfulness meditation and a presentation relevant to the challenges of being a mindful activist. We will have plenty of time for lively discussion. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The first Mindful Activism meeting will take place on Thursday, October 4th at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship at 780 Del Monte Lane in Reno, from 6:00-8:00PM. Thereafter it will be held the first and third Thursdays of every month.
