October Outreach FREE Online Event
Mindfulness is the practice of being actively aware and present in the moment and state that we are currently in. Mindfulness meditation can be silent, in movement, chanting, or guided. Join this FREE online exploration and discussion of mindfulness practices led by Gordon Peerman.
Gordon Peerman is an Episcopal priest, psychotherapist, and mindfulness meditation teacher. He is the author of Blessed Relief: What Christians Can Learn from Buddhists about Suffering, and his most recent book, The Body Knows the Way: Coming Home through the Dark Night. He leads retreats and workshops on the intersection of contemplative practice and psychological growth. With his late wife Kathy Woods, Gordon taught mindfulness practices at Vanderbilt’s Osher Center for Integrative Health, and to Vanderbilt law and medical students. At Vanderbilt Divinity School, he taught courses in Buddhist-Christian Dialogue and pastoral psychotherapy.
Gordon has been a presenter and partner with St. Mary’s Sewanee for many years. It is with great appreciation that we welcome him to this online presentation.
This is a FREE online event offered via Zoom. Registration is required. The Zoom link and login information will be emailed to you the day before the event.
