Ministry Koller Behavioral Health, part of Ascension, offers a monthly Mindfulness program in Rhinelander that is free to anyone in the community.
“When Things Fall Apart” is the featured program for May and will be offered on Tuesday, May 9, from 1-2:30 p.m. and Tuesday, May 23 from 5-6:30 p.m. Both sessions will be held at the Ministry Riverside Clinic at 1020 Kabel Avenue, Rhinelander in the 2nd floor conference room. Advanced registration is not required.
“From politics, health, work or family, people are often faced with conditions that seem unbearable,” said Kathy Mitchell, MA of Ministry Koller Behavioral Health. “Our May program will provide insight on how people can mindfully embrace and live within dissatisfaction.”
Ministry Koller Behavioral Health also offers the Riverside Meditation Group every other Thursday each month. In May, sessions will be held on May 4 and 18 from 5:30 – 7 p.m.
Riverside Meditation Group is an opportunity for anyone with a meditation practice to have regular group support. There are two twenty minute seated meditations with either walking meditation or Qigong in between. The meditation model is silent and still with occasional guided meditations. At the end a short talk focusing on enhancing skills of mindfulness and meditation. The Riverside Meditation Group draws from western psychological mindfulness teachings, philosophy, literature, and poetry.
