Mindful Meal Collaborative
We invite you to become a more mindful consumer through our Mindful Meal Collaborative! Mindful eating and food preparation is a wonderful practice to take into our daily lives. We are inviting folks in our community to set aside some time to prepare and eat one meal mindfully, maybe giving a nod to the environment, personal and family health and wellbeing, non-harming of sentient beings, and/or the practicalities of daily life. Take some photos, include a recipe, and tell about your experience at firstname.lastname@example.org and we may choose your experience to share online with everyone!
Holiday Gift from MAM to Our Members:
Soundscape Meditation with Amado Espinoza
As a thank you to our beloved members, we are offering you a FREE special sound meditation event with the talented Amado Espinoza. Amado was born in Cochabamba, Bolivia and moved to Kansas City in 2014. He is musical director of the Latin American band, Ayllu, a past Charlotte St. Foundation Performing Arts Fellow, and recipient of an ArtsKC inspiration grant. Amado has dedicated himself to the investigation, recuperation, interpretation, and construction of native instruments from different parts of the world. Says Espinoza, “I travel through my music. Through these instruments, and the quality of the sounds that they can produce, [I am transported] to landscapes that I have never seen in this lifetime… We can cross time and space together.” Enjoy a relaxing end to your weekend meditating to the indigenous sounds of this local musical talent.
