We want to welcome you back from Thanksgiving break with a K-12 Mindfulness Week. Students, staff, and parents are invited to a simple morning meditation practice every morning December 1-5th, lead by Patrick Stinson, a member of our community. Please join us if you are interested or just curious about a simple way to ease stress by developing attention and awareness of your body.
Setup at 7:35am
Meditation from 7:45-8:15am. Meditators are warmly encouraged to attend all sessions to receive full benefit.
- Comfortable, warm, loose clothing.
- A couple of stiff pillows or yoga bolster to sit on.
- An optional blanket to wrap yourself in.
At the end of the week, join us for our December Lunch & Learn starting at 11:45 on Friday. We will begin with a 15-minute meditation and then discuss how food can be a powerful tool to help you face the pace of semester’s end and holiday season with joy and ease.
We are excited to bring you a new feature on the Polaris website. With so much going on, we are attempting to streamline information and highlight the happenings here at Polaris - in small manageable bits, one week at a time.
At the top of the page you will find "This Week at Polaris". Immediately below is a brief video. It is a short week and our first attempt, but we look forward to building this as a reliable and timely source of information.
If you have something to add, or better yet, would like to appear as a guest, please email us here or see someone from the production team by Fridays. Filming takes place at 8:45AM on Mondays.
