Practicing mindfulness means to live with gentle, grateful awareness of this moment.

In a mindful state, we are peaceful, centered, engaged, and ready to be useful to others. This small group study offers ideas to bring the wonderful benefits of mindfulness into your life, with inspiring quotes, small group discussion questions, activities and meditations. This five week study explores the following topics:

  • Introduction to Mindfulness
  • Paying Attention
  • Being Purposeful
  • Being Present
  • Loving-Kindness and Unity

Gather some friends together and utilize this small group outline as structure and a starting point for a small group study and discussion on the topic (also great for individual study, or with a partner).
