Mindfulness: Mindful Meditation is a popular and simple meditation technique that focuses on your breath.
We have all experienced the joy of knitting and may have found it very relaxing. Mindful knitting will take it a step further adding the benefits of meditation. You will learn the basic mindfulness technique, be instructed on how to take your meditation home, using your knitting as a meditation tool, and enjoy a peaceful present moment.
Mindfulness is a non-denominational practice and is not connected with any formal religion.
