Event description

Description

This is a series of Calm Chicago Chill Out sessions called Second Sunday Meditation, which brings small groups of people together for self care, listening to each other and ourselves, healing, and exploring the possibilities of living fully, authenitcally and from a sense of grounded peace and interconnection. Each session will include guided meditation around a central theme that deals with learning how to deal with life's inevitable challenges with more grace. The cost is low to make it super accessible. I invite you to join in right away while there's still spots.

Brene Brown quote
We've all seen those folks who always seem calm no matter what's going on, right? Whether it's in the midst of some crazy crazy weather, or a major deadline at work, or the El has broken down and sitting on the tracks forever, or dealing with major medical or health stuff. They just seem to be able to surf through it.

We may find ourselves wishing that we could be that cool and clear headed under pressure.

Good news: We can ALL learn to be that person. Truly.

Abiding calm, mental and emotional clarity and self love don't happen over-night, but you can learn how to cultivate them through simple practices that you can do at home, in the bathroom, in the car, on the El, everywhere you are in your day to day life.

We'll use tools from mindfulness, yoga and positive psychology, to give you the direct experience of learning how to get better at dealing with life's many difficulties and bulding up your practice so that you can really become your own best friend. You'll leave knowing how to practice these outside of class so that you can keep building those skills and feeling stronger and better day by day.

You will learn:
We'll take these 2.5 hours to focus on supporting and encouraging you with specific exercises to help you feel better right here and now and making sure you know how to take the practices home with you with confidence.

How to practice simple awareness that bring you back to the moment with love
How to practice "on the fly"
How to identify what makes you feel great and get more of that good stuff
How to give yourself love and then spread that around to help create peace inside and out in the world
Quick tips for pausing amidst the chaos of life and emotions

Who should come to this?
You. Anyone who wants to be able to be able handle lifes inevitable ups and downs with more grace and ease; wants to feel safer, shappier, stronger no matter what is going on.

Who's teaching this?
Hillary Johnson is a photographer and mindfulness and creativity coach who'se been leading retreats and helping people feel better and companies work better since 2008. She's into travel and helping people feel authentic interconnection between them and all things. Also border collies, cattle dogs and bicycling.
