Clatsop Community College and the Fort George Brewery + Public House are pleased to announce the November event in the 2020-21 Ales & Ideas lecture series—broadcast from the Lovell Showroom via Facebook LIVE. On Thursday, November 5, 7pm CCC Yoga Instructor Julia Mabry will present Come to Your Senses: Practical Mindfulness for Turbulent Times.
Come to your senses: fill the mind with the present! Practical mindfulness does not have to start with a meditation retreat in the mountains of Tibet. During this interactive presentation, participants will explore ways to invite their attention to everyday experiences in the environment while delighting in truly amazing qualities of the human body. Filling the mind with the present moment through finely tuned attention to sensations and movements is a cornerstone of yoga pose practice. But those craving the renewal of presence need not step foot into a yoga studio; playful approaches to mindfulness are available to anyone—no chanting or spandex required. Join Julia and neighbors to explore human consciousness, learn about amazing feats the brain accomplishes to create reality, and marvel in the truth that we humans are indeed conscious. As Julia says, “The body is full of wonder if we remember to look for it.”
