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.
