JCC Squirrel Hill: 5738 Forbes Avenue | South Hills: 345 Kane Blvd., Scott
October 3, 2023
The JCC, in partnership with Awaken Pittsburgh, the region’s go-to mindfulness resource, is providing our members with a number of in-person and virtual guided meditations each month.
Based on evidence-based meditation and mindfulness practices, participants will learn lifelong skills that have the power to transform lives. A proven effective tool for reducing stress and improving one’s focus throughout the day, a regular mindfulness practice not only brings powerful, personal benefits to practitioners but to those with whom they connect each and every day.
Mindfulness Meditation (in-person and on-line)
Awaken Pittsburgh offers three monthly guided meditations open to anyone. This is a chance to practice mindfulness in community together.
Each session follows the same format: introductions, a period of guided meditation, and then a chance to support one another, discuss how our meditations are going at home, and ask any questions we have about practice.
Pre-registration, via the links provided, helps us to prepare and ensure that we have room for everyone.
