Event description

Description

Facilitated by Joey Taylor.

Enrollment limited to 10.

Our minds are filled with busy, unexamined habits. Maybe you’ve noticed that these habits, left unchecked, can lead to cut off relationships, addictive habits, feeling overwhelmed or a general loss of inspiration. Contemplative mindful practices, just 20 minutes a day, can help expose these habits and offer awareness to rewire our thinking. But where does one get started in a way that can last? Neuroscience now confirms that 8 weeks of such a practice changes the gray matter in your frontal cortex, the part of the brain that regulates knee-jerk reactions and anger, as well as opens neural pathways across hemispheres of the brain accessing imagination and authentic compassion.

Learn these practices in a small group that will offer weekly discussion, a safe place of discovery, and facilitation that helps “demystify” the work while integrating it with your everyday challenges around work, family, and community. Participants should expect to spend 20 minutes a day working on the practices explored in class. This class is limited to 10 people.

We can’t think our way into a new way of living; we must live our way into a new way of thinking.

With experience in interfaith engagement and international community development, Joey Taylor began his daily meditative practice at the encouragement of his doctors when he was diagnosed with cancer. Since then, he’s been able to share his practice in a multitude of settings, including with the incarcerated population, children, and religious adherents. He is also the producer of From the Hive, The Hive’s podcast. He lives in East Price Hill with his partner Brooklin and puppy Lucy.

This eight course runs from September 12th through October 31st.
