The Arcadia Public Library presents The Art of Mindfulness
Celebrate Mindfulness Month with Special Workshop, Storytime
May 10, 2023 – Learn the “Art of Mindfulness” at a special workshop hosted by Arcadia Public Library at 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 20, in the Cay Mortenson Auditorium. All ages are welcome, and reservations are not necessary.
Participants will learn the benefits and basics of mindfulness, then experience a guided seated practice, followed by mindful walking, and a seated loving-kindness practice. Participants will go home with the tools they need to bring mindfulness into their day-to-day activities for a more peaceful and present life.
The instructor, Amy Rutledge, is a certified meditation instructor from the Nalanda Institute of Contemplative Sciences in New York City. Amy found meditation as a way of healing when all else had failed and became an instructor as a way to help others.
Also, as part of Mindfulness Month, Children’s Services is also hosting a special Mindfulness storytime series for children ages four to eight. Children and their accompanying adults can hear stories, learn breathing and grounding exercises that can be used every day, and much more! The storytime is held on Tuesdays, May 16, 23, and 30, at 6:30 p.m. in the Jerry Broadwell Children’s Room. Visit the Arcadia Public Library’s website at www.ArcadiaCA.gov/library or call the Adult Services desk at 626.821.5569 for more information.
