Mindfulness and Meditation
With Isabelle Schoenfeld
Wednesday, January 11, 2023
2pm to 3:30pm eastern time
Members: $12 Non-Members: $20
Have you seen references to “mindfulness” and “meditation” in commercials on TV, in movies, articles, on phone apps, and wondered what it’s all about? In this presentation, Isabelle Schoenfeld (Is) will describe what mindfulness and meditation means and the benefits of their application.
Is believes “that no matter what comes up in life, personal or societal, the teachings offer us a guide on how to live in mindful awareness instead of reactivity—a deeply effective and valuable practice in our chaotic world!”
Topics to be covered include:
- What are the characteristics of Mindfulness & Meditation and the benefits of integrating each into your life
- Various ways to meditate
- A brief meditation exercise
- How Mindfulness and Meditation can help you live a life filled with
compassion and lovingkindness, the ability to forgive yourself and others, and ways to experience more gratitude, generosity, and joy.
There will be time for questions and sharing.
"Mindfulness is a way of befriending ourselves and our experience." Jon Kabat-Zinn
Isabelle (aka Is) has practiced mindfulness and meditation since 2001 and has participated in many silent retreats and workshops. She completed the internationally recognized two-year Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Certification Program founded and led by renowned senior teachers/ authors, Tara Brach and Jack Kornfield.
Since 2020, Is has been teaching a six-week class titled “Introduction to Mindfulness and Meditation for Women 50+.” Her personal objective in offering the class is to help women 50+ live with greater ease and peace with whatever arises in daily life, by following the teachings of mindfulness and meditation.
Is’s interest in supporting older adults is long-standing. Following a career in the federal government, she served on Montgomery County, Maryland’s, Commission on Aging for six years, including one year as Chair.
