Mindfulness

Yogic mindfulness activities. Silent eating meditation.

I can’t help myself – these activities in a press release tend to catch my attention. There’s a half-day event on Saturday at Yogafied that addresses them.

Dr. Robert Glidewell, a licensed clinical psychologist and certified behavioral sleep medicine specialist, will offer a mindfulness class. Corinne Andrews, owner of Yogafied, will provide the yoga portion of the day.

I’m unsure of what exactly the afternoon will entail, though the release says, “This is an opportunity to step out of autopilot, simplify your life for a few hours, and become reacquainted with an experience of stillness and reflection.”

And I think we can all agree that a few hours of being stiller than usual can only be a good thing.

Space is limited.

Where: Yogafied, 313 N. 24th St.
