Parks & Rec Lunch & Learn Series: Mindfulness for a Resilient World – Planning for Earth Day @ Zoom - register below for link
Mar 10 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

NOTE: This is a Lunch & Learn Webinar for Parks and Recreation Departments hosted through CivicRec, All-In-One Parks & Recreation Management Software. It is open to the public, so feel free to register at this link and join in!

There is so much going on in the world, so much noise, and so many things that constantly need our attention. It’s easy to get caught up in your day-to-day routine and realizing only when your head hits the pillow at night, that you have unresolved anxiety about the future and the unknown, especially when it comes to the conservation of the planet.

Join Sami Aaron, Founder of The Resilient Activist, on Wednesday, March 10 at Noon CT (10 a.m. PT, 11 a.m. MT, 1 p.m. ET) as she explains the importance of the interconnected relationship, both physically and emotionally, between humans and the health of the planet and how you can bring mindfulness back to your community.

All registrants will receive a recording of the broadcast within 48 hours after the live event. By registering for this event, you agree to receive communications from the speaker.

Mindfulness for a Resilient World (Turning Point Clients) @ Zoom
Apr 19 @ 10:00 pm – 11:30 pm

More and more studies show the powerful benefits – for both physical health and emotional wellbeing – of mindfulness practices and time spent in nature. This event, bringing these two important concepts together, can nurture individual wellbeing while fostering community-wide resilience.

Participants will

      • receive an understanding of the benefits of nature-centered, community-based mindfulness practices to your physical and emotional health.
      • learn the simple steps to a nature-based mindfulness practice in an experiential, guided meditation session through the Five Essentials for a Resilient World
      • receive small group support and insight through discussions about mindfulness practices and ways you can bring them into your everyday life.

Registration for this event is through Turning Point and the University of Kansas Health System.

Turning Point is open to anyone who is living with a chronic or serious physical illness, as well as their family and friends. They provide innovative, educational services and tools to inspire people to take charge of their illness and live their life to the fullest.
