Take a Break From Stress: Revised Schedule

The “Take a Break From Stress” meetings have been ongoing for nearly four months as of today (July 27, 2020).  Because of changes and demands in my professional responsibilities, I am revising the schedule of our “drop-in” meetings.

First, there will be no meetings during the week of July 27, 2020.  That means that there will not be meetings on Tuesday, July 28 or Thursday, July 30.

Second, beginning the week of August 3, 2020, we will be meeting only on Tuesdays.  This means that our next drop-in meeting will be on Tuesday, August 4, 2020.

Third, because of an “outlier meeting” on my schedule on Tuesday, August 11, 2020, there will be no meeting on that day.  Instead, I’ll be holding a meeting that week on Thursday, August 13, 2020.

After that, we’ll be meeting every Tuesday, beginning on August 18, 2020, at least through the end of the calendar year.

Each meeting will continue to be documented and video recorded.  You can find all of these meeting documents and recordings under the “Videos Available for Download” link in the menu bar.

The logistics for these meetings remains the same:

11:50 am         Zoom Meeting site opens  (11:50 EDT [USA]; 15:50 GMT)

Noon               A Brief Talk from Dr. Walsh: Lessons we can learn from Mindfulness

12:05 – 12:20  Gently guided Mindfulness Meditation

After 12:20 feel free to stay in the Zoom Meeting site for reflection and conversation.  The Zoom Meeting will have to close by no later than 1 pm

In order to join a Zoom meeting just follow this link on your internet browser, on your phone or computer:

Once you have reached the site, enter the Meeting ID:

Meeting ID: 154 883 178

So please join us for a time to sit back, take a breath, and reflect a bit so that you can return to the activities of the day and the stress you are experiencing with a calmer and more grounded mindset.

Jim, this is wonderful! Thank you! Will you be recording it? My daughter has a zoom meeting at that time but I would be grateful to view it later.
