Mindfulness Training and Guided Meditation
with Cheryl Schirillo

Unity Church of Winston-Salem
1st Tuesday
each month

September 6
October 4
November 1
December 6

11:45 AM - 1:00 PM

Cheryl Schirillo leads our Guided Mindfulness/Meditation Session the 1st Tuesday of every month in Unity's Sanctuary.

All are welcome at this gathering including people new to working with the present moment and experienced meditators from all backgrounds. Cheryl has co-created this Guided Meditation Journey at the invitation of her mother, Unity member, Elaine Bates, and Unity's Spiritual Leader, Rev. Elizabeth Forrest.

There is no set cost for this gathering, but heart donations are appropriate and appreciated and are shared with Unity.

People start arriving at 11:45 am to enjoy relaxed, informal conversation. We begin promptly at noon with music and gentle movement, then have a short lesson in Mindfulness before moving into a 20 minute guided-meditation. The Guided Mindfulness Journey ends a little before 1:00 pm.

You are invited to bring a bagged lunch to enjoy it with the group at Unity's kitchen table starting at 1:00 pm, but that part is optional and not part of the guided meditation experience.

Cheryl Schirillo has worked with a wide-range of mindfulness, Buddhist meditation, and nature practices for thirteen years. She has studied with Zen Monks, Native American Shamans and Pacos (healers/shamans) from Peru. Her Mindfulness Consulting Practice was inspired by Otto Scharmer, Senior Lecturer at M.I.T's Sloan School of Management, and Co-Founder of the Presencing Institute. For the past two years, she has studied with Otto and a local group of community innovators participating in U.Lab, a global movement to build a new economy by co-sensing and co-creating with the emerging future.

Cheryl is a community innovator, conduit, connector and change-agent. She is President/CEO of Bridges Connecting Communities, Inc. and Founder of the Imagination Installations Project. She also offers "Mindfulness at Work" Training Programs, Workshops and Retreats for small local groups, non-profits and businesses.
