MON JAN 28, 2019

We are starting a new program using James Baraz‘s program Awakening Joy. Please sign up at AwakeningJoy.info if you can. There is a group discount of $80 if you sign up using the group code Onalaska-016. We will be using James Baraz’s book “Awakening Joy “ for this program.
Please let me know that you are joining us by signing up at mindfulnesslacrossewisconsin.offeringtree.com Our first session will be on Thursday February 28, 2019
We will be meeting on the second and fourth Thursday of the month.

  • The meeting will be held at Gundersen Health System Onalaska Clinic at 3111 Gundersen Drive, OnalaskaThe meeting room is on the second floor - Conference room 2A.Go up the stairs or elevator to the second floor and go to your left. The conference room is in the far left corner.Please dress in layers. I am not sure how the temperature will be for everybody. Bring warming clothes, blankets if you tend to be cold. Make sure that you have light clothing on if you tend to be warm. We will not be able to adjust the thermostat on our own.Bring a cushion for your back or feet if you need those.

We are getting together on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month from 6-8 pm. In order for this to continue to be a safe and supportive place for everybody to work with this very important practice, please leave all personal stories in the room. Each of us is a human being free from other roles in this space. Feel free to share what you personally learned with people who are interested. The main work is to look within ourselves and find out what we can do to decrease our distress, getting to know ourselves more and take care of ourselves well. By taking care of ourselves this way, we can also take care of others in a compassionate way.I would also like to request that you share similar experiences and what help your growth and development and refrain from directly giving instruction or advice to other participants unless directly requested by the individual.
