Mindfulness Challenge

Saturday, November 9 –

Meditate for Mental Health!

On November 9, join us for a 4-hour journey of mindfulness, heart opening, clarity and connection. Anyone can do it! The program features an incredible variety of mindfulness practices. With guidance by mindfulness teacher trainer extraordinaire Susan Woods and movement guru Roberta Mohler, it’s an amazing way for beginners to dive in, and for experienced meditators to ride the wave of so many people practicing together.   Here at Sugar Ridge we’ll participate via the internet using a web connection and projector.

This year’s theme is “Clear Mind – Open Heart.” Together, they are like two wings of a great bird, enabling us to respond to the stresses of life with more ease. They allow us to be present with ourselves, with others and with the world.

Help bring mindfulness for mental health to marginalized people who live with depression, anxiety and other mental health challenges, by participating in Mindfulness Challenge 2019 and asking friends, family and others to sponsor you.

All funds raised will be used towards mindfulness for mental health for the disadvantaged, delivered through the Centre for Mindfulness Studies’groundbreaking Community Program.

To participate at the Sugar Ridge location please register here.  Join the Sugar Ridge Team here.  As always, the top fundraiser wins a weekend retreat here at Sugar Ridge.
