Mindfulness for Missionaries

from 10.00

An LDS mission can be one of the most rewarding experiences in life for those who serve. It can also be an intense, stressful, even disillusioning experience in unanticipated ways. 

After serving the Salt Lake area with high-quality mindfulness instruction for many years, we’ve found that there is a particular benefit to holding missionaries in a meditative space where they can reflect on and process their diverse experiences together. Beyond helping missionaries make new meaning of the past, our unique approach teaches soul-changing skills that position return missionaries to thrive in their lives moving forward.

Course Details:
Each Monday evening, between January 1st and February 12th, we’ll be holding an intimate group space for anyone who has recently been on a mission, returned, and wants to explore the rewards and challenges of the experience with like-minded, like-hearted others. (Note: There will be one bye week January 15th for Martin Luther King Jr. Day)

Facilitator: Thomas McConkie

Skills we will develop in the course:
• basic mindfulness: a life-changing skill set
• body awareness: tapping into a different kind of wisdom
• skill at feeling: working with challenging emotions
• being vs. doing: getting off the hamster wheel
• self-compassion, non-judgment

The group has been generously subsidized by Lower Lights sponsors, so we’re able to offer the experience for only $10 per evening (our normal price for private groups is $25/session) or $50 pre-registration for the entire series. 

We encourage participants to attend all 6 evenings but will allow for drop-ins.

Private home near downtown Salt Lake City. Location to be announced.
