"Mindfulness is nonjudgmental observation. It is that ability of the mind to observe without criticism. With this ability, one sees things without condemnation or judgment. One is surprised by nothing. One simply takes a balanced interest in things exactly as they are in their natural states. One does not decide and does not judge. One just observes." -- Bhante Henepola Gunaratana, Mindfulness in Plain English
The Celestial Dance is a massage studio, but Mindfulness practice is an important part of what I do, both in my massage and energy work, and in my other occupation as a meditation instructor. I offer several courses through MBSR Salem, including Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), Deepening Mindfulness Practice, and Individual Instruction. I offer these courses at Oregon School of Massage's Salem campus. I also sit with Salem Insight, which is a non-denominational Vipassana meditation group in Salem.
Since this website is for my massage business, I will leave the discussion of meditation classes to this very brief overview, but I invite you to visit the sites linked in the previous paragraph. They explain everything in closer detail. Of course, if you have questions, don't hesitate to contact me at your convenience.
