Mindfulness Meditation – Foundational Practices for Stressful Times
With Cristina Mullen
Fridays, May 8th - June 5th
9am-10:15am
Online via Zoom conference
Hosted by CURA

Are you meditation-curious?  You’ve probably heard a wide range of influential people singing the praises of a regular meditation practice for physical, mental, and spiritual well-being.  Perhaps you’ve even tried meditating, but found yourself sitting on the floor with your eyes closed thinking, ok now what?  

In partnership with CURA, therapist Cristina Mullen is offering a five-week, donation-based meditation workshop starting May 8th that will introduce participants to beginning meditation skills. The course will cover mindfulness of breath, body and sounds and explore sitting meditation mindful movement practices, mindful eating, and mindful walking.

These are possibly the most stressful times of our lives - collectively and individually.  A mindfulness practice can help develop and grow a refuge within you that will serve you during the hardest moments and will create space in you so others may call upon your calm.  At it’s core mindfulness is an invitation to experience every moment. It teaches us that we’re not entitled to anything and therefore can be grateful for everything beautiful while accepting discomfort and grief with grace. 

Cristina is offering this workshop to fulfill her training with Tara Brach and Jack Kornfield - both legends in the field of spiritual teaching.  100% of your suggested donation of $10-30 dollars per class will fund Refugee Artisan Initiative (RAI), a Seattle non-profit that trains and employs immigrant and refugee women by providing jobs in sewing production. RAI has turned 100% of their efforts into making PPE to serve the healthcare provider community.  If a donation is not within reach right now, please feel free to contact us directly to register (email below). No one will be turned away.

This is a progressive workshop, so we ask that you commit to attending all five classes in the program. Please register HERE.

To learn more feel free to contact kate@thecuraco.com with any questions you might have.

CURA welcomes you to a guided discussion of Robin DiAngelo’s Deconstructing White Privilege. In this 20-minute talk, DiAngelo asks us to consider the context and the consequences of being white in America. We will be using DiAngelo’s White Privilege Discussion Guide to look deeply and reflect thoughtfully on our race-driven frame of reference and experience and how it perpetuates systems and institutions of unequal power.

I think the time is right to acknowledge that despite this unprecedented challenge, we are - in fact - making it work.  We’re doing it. Every day, sometimes painfully, angrily, and sadly, but we are. How many of you have done something in the past 8 weeks you never thought was possible?
