Sandy's November/December 2023
Qigong & Mindfulness


Morraine Lake, Banff, Canada

What Matters.JPG

Cultivating Centered Connections

Have you begun to feel the pressure rising in your psyche yet – preparing for the holidays and all the extra lists that come along with it (Things To Do, People to Invite, Menus and Grocery Lists, Shall I send cards at all? Gift Lists, etc.)?

Amidst whatever else your holiday season brings, I’d like to invite you to join me in making a different type of list – a list of each person you’d like to connect with in a meaningful way in the next couple of months.  And then begin to make it happen, starting with THIS week.  It might be a phone call, an invitation to tea, a small group gathering over Zoom or a weekend get-away. 

Keep it simple.  What matters is that we set the time aside and make it happen, without sacrificing our own well-being and self-care routines.

And speaking of self-care, please check out the following opportunities in my newsletter:

  • Ongoing Qigong Classes: Mondays via Zoom and Wednesdays at Harbor Wellness

  • Intro to Mindfulness Meditation Class begins in January on Mondays at 12:30pm

  • Monthly Mindfulness Meditation Group:  November 20 and December 18, 6:30pm

  • Winter Solstice Meditation with Qigong via Zoom on December 18, 9am

  • Winter Solstice Meditation after Qigong at Harbor on December 20, 10:45am

Sending you Qi Blessings for your Holiday Connections,

Sandy Salvo

"If you ever wonder what's the big deal about mindfulness, you might remember this...Mindfulness (or vipassana meditation) is the technology for shifting from being ensnarled in suffering to being curious about it."                               Ruth King

"Between life’s stimuli and our habitual responses exists choice."
 Ken Wilber


Learning to live with awareness and acceptance of what is happening around and within us can free us from unnecessary worry, anxiety, and stress which adversely affects our mental and physical health. Mindfulness meditation gives us tools for living life with purpose and joy.

Meeting weekly for 90 minutes in a small group, we will explore the foundations and benefits of mindfulness meditation, focusing on learning through experience and self-reflection.  Students will be provided with an electronic workbook to print and will be encouraged to practice various forms of mindfulness at home between sessions.  No experience is necessary, but a curious mindset is key!

Fee: $122
