The Midwest Alliance for Mindfulness (MAM) values community and understands the importance of practicing together. We offer weekly mindfulness practice meetings to our members and the general public. Meetings are led by a rotating group of mindfulness professionals and offer an opportunity to start, build, maintain or deepen a practice and connect with like-minded individuals. Having trouble maintaining a personal practice? Our weekly meetings can contribute to participation in our Annual Meditation Challenge.
MAM Member Practice Meetings
As a benefit of membership, MAM offers a weekly practice meeting for its members. Meetings are guided by trained mindfulness teachers. Each meeting begins with gentle mindful movement to prepare the body for stillness, shifts into a period of minimally guided meditation, and ends with inquiry and discussion. Participants are invited to wear comfortable clothing and bring a yoga mat and meditation cushion. Props, chairs and rental mats are also available on location.
- Thursdays from 7-8 pm at Seeking Solace Yoga in Overland Park, KS (please preregister to save your spot) ** Not ready to become a member yet? Purchase a single drop-in for $10 or a 10-class pass for $90 **
MAM membership offers many benefits beyond the weekly practice group. Visit our membership page to connect with our growing community of mindfulness professionals and practitioners. You can also join us online on Facebook.
Donation-Based Practice Meetings
Our donation based meetings are FREE and open to the public. There is no fee and any donations go to the hosting location. The facilitators are volunteers and take no payment for their services. Meetings may include guided meditation, mindful walking or eating, mindful yoga (gentle), community discussion, or some combination of these practices. Some meetings are family friendly and some are meant for adults. If you are participating in our meditation challenge you will want to pre-register online – if not, just show up with your yoga mat (some spares are available, rental fees may apply). Bring a meditation cushion or bench if you use one. Chairs and props may be available depending on the location.
- Tuesdays from 7-8 pm at Cornerstones of Care – Spofford Campus
