Our Greater Pittsburgh area is still recovering from the horrendous killing of 11 worshipers at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Squirrel Hill on October 27, 2018. How do we make sense of a seemingly senseless act, an act of hatred, and how do we heal together? Can Mindfulness help us to open to healing and to helping one another create an environment in which such tragedies will not take place again?
This year's Mindfulness Fair if focused on just this question, and invites us to look at Mindfulness in our Community, and its role in helping us heal. A rich Program of 20 seminars and workshops (click here) is offered in 6 session periods. Let us join one another in this learning, and bring our personal practice of mindful living as a teaching as well. Information for time and tickets is below.

MARK YOUR CALENDARS!
The third annual Mindfulness Fair, sponsored by the Center for Mindfulness and Consciousness Studies at the University of Pittsburgh, will be held on Saturday, April 7, 2018 at the Falk Laboratory School on the Pitt campus. This free, all-ages event will run from 10am-4pm. The theme this year is “Mindfulness in Our Community”.
Through this theme, the Fair will explore ways in which mindfulness- the conscious awareness of the moment- is informing compassionate activities in our homes and communities - and will feature local and regional organizations that support these activities. A keynote speaker will be featured, along with breakout sessions of talks, mindful movement activities, panel discussions and “all ages” activities. There will also be a meditation room in which different varieties of shrines and meditation techniques will be demonstrated. Information tables of local non-profit and campus organizations will be available.
