Practice mindfulness in community

An essential element of compassionate living

Shared meditation experiences can contribute to a sense of calm and relaxation, especially in groups where there is a genuine sense of trust and care. Being around people we feel safe with alleviates stress and anxiety, promoting emotional well-being.

Discover opportunities for you to practice mindfulness as part of a community.

Live, in person practice

There are several opportunities each week to practice together in person. Many of these opportunities include hybrid options. While there are many groups dedicated to mindfulness meditation across the Kansas City area, the ones listed below are the ones I typically attend.

  • Midwest Alliance for Mindfulness. This secular-based mindfulness organization offers a wide variety of mindfulness practices, including lunchtime practice, community-wide gatherings, queer community gatherings, and contemplation hours.
  • Honey Locust Sangha, Kansas City extension. The original Honey Locust Sangha orients from Omaha, NE. There are enough of us from the KC area who attend their hybrid weekly gatherings that we reserve a conference room at the Mid-Continent Public Library in Parkville monthly to join our Omaha "family" together. If you would like to join us at our next gathering, email me for the date and time.
  • Living Water Christian Church. At various times throughout the year, this compassionate congregation offers 6-week sessions of yoga and meditation. If you're interested, check their calendar for periodic updates.

Live, online practice

Throughout the year, I will offer online practice or trainings based on interest. While many of my online classes integrate art with mindfulness, the core of my practice is in dedicated, seated meditation.  When enough people tell me they're interested in a particular subject (like Intro to Mindfulness, Mindful Creativity, Mindful Self-Care, etc.), that's my signal to offer a live, online series through Zoom.

If you are interested in learning more about a particular aspect of mindfulness, let me know!  

Check out my self-paced courses! They're a great way to learn about mindfulness on your own time and at your own pace.
