Today’s practice is inspired by the phrase “resting my eyes.” Rest is revolutionary and necessary. By choosing rest, we choose the present moment. Mindfulness creates the pause, which is a space to look again, make choices, and experience more fully the present moment. You will experience bumble bee breath, some gentle movement, and time for silence in this practice.
Connect In is a guided mindfulness practice that happens every Wednesday at 8:15 a.m. EST. This community event is virtual, free, and open to all levels of mindfulness practice. 15 minutes is all it takes to start your day with intention. Connect In now!
