Mindfulness Training Class
A free mindfulness training class is taught locally each Wednesday evening from 6:00-7:00 p.m. by myself, usually on the first and third Wednesdays; and Caroline Kiss, a Mindful Self-Compassion Teacher, the other weeks. While there is no obligation, participants are asked to make whatever donation of food or money possible, 100% of which will be donated to the Utah Food Bank and our local Soup Kitchen. The Soup Kitchen, now providing meals five days each week at Grace Episcopal Church for those in need, is generously supported by numerous churches, organizations, families, and individuals in our community. Please join us for the mindfulness class and to help our community neighbors in this way.

Love After Love - Derek Walcott
The time will come
when, with elation,
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror,
and each will smile at the other's welcome,
and say, sit here. Eat.
You will love again the stranger who was yourself.
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you
all your life, who you ignored
for another, who knows you by heart.
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,
the photographs, the desperate notes,
peel your own image from the mirror.
Sit. Feast on your life.
