Each month, we gather in mindfulness, to develop and deepen our own well-being practice, so that we can live our lives from a place of equanimity, non-reactivity, and calm. The foundation of our practice is based on four core concepts: gentleness, non-violence, compassion, and mindfulness. Each session starts with simple clearing, centering, and grounding exercises, a moment of inspirational poetry, followed by different artistic or meditation activities that help you to discover, release, or heal and restore. This is an interactive and experiential session where participation and questions are welcomed. Participants often leave with greater clarity and understanding.
October 2022: Mindful Choices
When conflicting interests arise, we may be plagued by doubt ranging from are we making the right choices for ourselves or for others, to how do we deliver the message, to how do we even aspire to get to where we want to be. Inspired by the words of author Robert Louis Stevenson, "To know what you prefer, instead of humbly saying yes to what the world tells you ought to prefer, is to have kept your spirit alive." Mindful questioning allows us to unravel the core issues. Mindful delivery allows us to do so with grace and compassion. Join this session to reflect and practice the art of making mindful choices. Participants often leave with greater clarity.
Bhakti Wong is a somatic therapist, yoga and mindfulness teacher.
In 2002, Bhakti discovered yoga as a way for her to stay fit amidst her frequent-flyer corporate career. Eventually, this was not enough, and she began pursuing the study of yoga, mindfulness, and meditation. Since then, Bhakti has worked to educate and empower thousands to find inner alignment through guided mindfulness exercises that led to changes in behaviors which used to cause anxiety, confusion, and pain.
Bhakti highlights the deeply intertwined system of the body, mind, and emotions. This is somatic, the mind-body-connection: to bring to light the conscious and subconscious parts of ourselves, so we can make choices with more discernment. In her sessions, she focuses on four core concepts: gentleness, non-violence, compassion, and mindfulness, which are the foundations of the Hakomi method of somatic psychotherapy.
