Event description

Description

When confronting injustice produced by human systems of indifference and intolerance, it is important for people of faith and conscience to find sustainable practices to help remain faithful to the fundamental principles underlying their engagement.

Mindfulness practices, along with worship, help individuals to discover a stronger spiritual presence within themselves as well as a sense of interconnectedness, love, and compassion for other humans

Compassionate behavior occurs when 1) people are aware of the suffering of those around them, 2) people want to help alleviate that suffering, and 3) they take action to accomplish that. ICPJ and Mindful City Ann Arbor are presenting a 3.5-hour workshop, teaching mindfulness and compassion practices.

In this introductory workshop, several core principles of mindfulness and compassion will be explored. Through experiential activities, discussion and reflection, participants will discover how mindfulness relates to compassion for self and others. Participants will be guided in specific practices that they can use in daily life to cultivate greater empathy and equanimity.

This workshop will be led by:

Lynn Sipher, LMSW, ACSW is a clinical social worker and long time mindfulness practitioner. She is co-founder of Mindful City Ann Arbor and Ann Arbor Center for Mindfulness and member of ICPJ.

Rita Benn, Ph.D. is Director of the Faculty Scholars Program in Integrative Healthcare at the University of Michigan, a long-term practitioner of meditation and co-founder of Ann Arbor Center for Mindfulness, the Michigan Collaborative for Mindfulness in Education and Mindful City.

Thank you to Zion Lutheran Church for hosting us in their space.
