Mindful Meditation with Kjirsten Winters
Join us for this special class led by Kjirsten Winters, an occupational therapist, mother, artist and active a member of Tacoma Buddhist Temple since 2018. In addition to her Buddhist faith, the pursuit of mental wellness and soul growth practices led her to Kundalini Yoga that uses asanas (poses), pranayama (breathwork), mantra (chanting), sound and mudras (hand positioning) to raise energy, support the chakras and clarify the mind.
This mostly seated class will incorporate a sampling of each technique in order to get your mind ready for blissful meditation. All you will need is a comfortable place to sit (either on the floor on a cushion/ mat or in a chair). All levels are welcome, and accommodations can always be made. There will be a brief introduction to the methods, a physical warm up and an 11-minute meditation plus quiet sitting. Time will also be allotted for discussion and/or questions. This class is intended to leave you feeling refreshed and inspired.
