Mindfulness Challenge 2017

This charity event is for an excellent cause: all money raised will go towards bringing mindfulness to marginalized folks living with mental health challenges. My part will be a guided music, movement and “vicarious joy” meditation, where 200 people will go from lying down to hands-in-the-air mamba swaying. With eyes closed, so no one sees how beautiful and ridiculous they look.

Copy: “Not your average fundraising event. It’s a meditate-athon featuring a feast of mindfulness activities — from meditation to yoga to mindful eating and back again, all designed to get your compassion juices flowing. Guided by some of Toronto’s best mindfulness and yoga teachers, including our own Jeff Warren, it’s a great way for beginners to dive in, and for experienced meditators to ride the wave of so many people practising together.”

All money raised will help The Centre for Mindfulness Studies bring mindfulness mental health programs to marginalized people who live with depression, anxiety and other challenges. Last year’s event was a big success. In addition to the Toronto location, this year’s event is also taking place in Oakville, London and online. Click for more good information.
