4th Annual Mindfulness Fair March 23

The Fourth Annual Mindfulness Fair, sponsored by the Center for Mindfulness and Consciousness Studies at the University of Pittsburgh, will be held on Saturday, March 23, 2019 at the Falk Laboratory School on the Pitt campus. Doors open for this free, all-ages event at 9:30a.m. and it runs through 4p.m. The theme this year is  “Mindfulness in Our Community: Listening, Learning, Helping.”

This year we will explore ways in which mindfulness – the conscious awareness of the moment- can help our community heal, find peace, and move us into action to make positive change.  Keynote speaker, Michelle King, fellow love activist, social change facilitator, and innovative mindfulness educator will be featured, along with breakout sessions, mindful movement activities, “all ages” activities, and a special panel of mindful action first responders who set the pace for positive change in our city after the events last year.

Our meditation room will feature a variety of meditation techniques led by local practitioners. Information tables highlighting the work of regional non-profit and campus organizations will also be available throughout the day.

Light refreshments and snacks will be available throughout the day.

We invite the greater Pittsburgh community to gather together to mindfully listen and learn from each other as we all find ways to help bring peace, healing, and change for all.
