Save the date: Mindfulness Fair 2018

The third annual Mindfulness Fair, sponsored by the Center for Mindfulness and Consciousness Studies at the University of Pittsburgh, will be held on Saturday, April 7, 2018 at the Falk Laboratory School on the Pitt campus. This free, family friendly event will run from 10am-4pm. The theme this year is “Mindfulness in Our Community”.

Through this theme, the Fair will explore ways in which mindfulness- the conscious awareness of the moment- is informing compassionate activities in our homes and communities, and will feature some of the organizations that support these activities. A keynote speaker will be featured, along with breakout sessions of talks, mindful movement activities, panel discussions and “all ages” activities. There will also be a meditation room in which different varieties of shrines and meditation techniques will be demonstrated. Information tables of local non-profit and campus organizations will be available.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided. All ages are welcome, and the event is open to everyone in this region. The Falk School is located at 4060 Allequippa St 15213, and free parking is available at the school or the nearby Veterans Hospital.

Please join us for a day of interesting and inspiring activities!
