DATE: March 5, 2018
THEME: Seeing the Forest and the Trees
MEDITATION : Honing in and Zooming out
INTERACTIVE : Colour me concentrated
Erin: To kick off the month, we’ll explore divergent directions of concentration practice, honing in on a narrow object of focus then zooming out to pay attention to the entirety of experience, and seeing how they contrast and complement one another. For our introvert-friendly part 2, we’ll get artistically absorbed through mindful colouring, an increasingly popular meditative passtime designed to focus attention and calm the inner system through gentle repetitive motion. Bonus (totally optional) extrovert-friendly part 3 post-CEC field trip to our new favourite local watering hole The Gaslight, just up the street from our Mosaic home, to further practice concentrating on making conversation with other meditators amidst all the glorious distractions of a loud and low-lit bar.
