Chair Tai Chi @ Bellingham Public Library
Mar 26 @ 3:00 pm – 3:45 pm

Chair Tai Chi uses all of the concepts and flowing choreographed movements of standing Tai Chi except it is performed in a seated position. It is often called “Meditation in Motion” because it connects the mind and the body to achieve health and well-being. Chair Chi, as it is often called, is an excellent exercise for people who may have concerns about balance and want to improve their stability. In this session, the presenter will teach the participants a set of movements that can be done at home. Take-home materials will be provided.

Everyday Yoga @ Center for Mindful Use
Mar 27 @ 5:55 pm

All-levels yoga postures and teachings for the everyday person. Join us every Wednesday at 5:55 p.m. in the Forum de Freedom to learn the practice of yoga in simple language.

Yoga is a practice that helps us access a state of integration and wholeness inside ourselves. It is not just for the flexible, although it will build flexibility. It is not just for the meditator, although it will teach you to meditate. If you can breathe, you can practice yoga.

Come join The Heart School, a depth yoga school for everyday people, as we learn and practice the whole-person experience of yoga together. Yoga asana (postures), breathwork (pranayama), meditation and philosophy.

*Must bring your own mat*

Please arrive on time. Doors will be locked soon after our practice begins to minimize disturbance.

Drop-ins welcome. The class is free with inspired love donations gratefully accepted.

Please check www.mindfuluse.org for last-minute schedule changes.

Monday Meditation @ Center for Mindful Use
Apr 1 @ 5:55 pm
Monday Meditation @ Center for Mindful Use | Bellingham | Washington | United States

Whether you are new to meditation or a veteran “sitter,” please join us every Monday evening in Bellingham’s Forum de Freedom as the CMU community gathers to practice stillness. Meditation unites mind, body and spirt, helping one tap into the deep state of relaxation, peace — and sometimes inspiration! — that exists within all of us.

Some have found mindful cannabis use an aid to meditation, helping calm the “monkey mind” and ground oneself in the present moment.

Our Monday Night Meditation could not be more simple. We meet. We greet. We take a seat. On most evenings, our practice includes our beautiful Tibetan crystal singing bowl, which invokes a state of deep relaxation that can naturally assist one in entering a meditative state.

And we always finish before 7:00 p.m.

This is not a meditation class, but during the “greet” we can share meditation practices that may assist those new to meditation.

Please arrive by 5:55 p.m. so we can begin promptly at 6:00 p.m. Doors will be locked shortly after our meditation begins to minimize disturbance to other sitters.

Drop-ins welcome. Please bring your own meditation pillow (we do have a few first-come/first-serve loaners) or plan to use a chair. It all works. And it’s all free. (Inspired love donations always gratefully accepted.)

Please check www.mindfuluse.org for last-minute schedule changes.

Unless otherwise noted, events sponsored by the Center for Mindful Use are “Canna-friendly,” that is that our instructors neither encourage nor discourage cannabis use, but encourage guests to show up as they are.
