Mindfulness - Appleton Parks and Recreation

Life is stressful and uncertain. The world pandemic has wide-ranging effects. Yet even in difficult times, we can cultivate presence, ease, compassion, and gratitude. Mindfulness provides rich inner resources and tools. When we’re mindful, we listen, notice, focus, and create. We are present in our own lives. 

About the Teacher: Joy Jordan is a former statistics professor who left academia to better align her inner and outer lives. Now she teaches meditation and mindfulness. Joy’s classes include active practice, accessible exercises, and heartfelt teachings.

When people practice mindfulness, it awakens their inner wisdom and awareness. Yet it’s easy to stop practicing—we often resist the very habits that bring us ease and healing. This second 5-week course re-establishes practices of meditation and mindfulness. It also provides new instruction on compassion, well-being, self-kindness, and meaningful communication.
