Are you overwhelmed and exhausted? Are you constantly worried? Do you find it hard to calm your mind?
You are not alone...
Did you know that 80-90% of doctor's visits are stress related? Stress can cause emotional and physical symptoms such as sleep disturbance, fatigue, trouble thinking clearly, digestive problems, anxiety, depression and high blood pressure. But the latest research has proven that mindfulness training can dramatically improve these problems, all of which hamper our ability to lead a healthy & joyful existence.
OUR FACILITATOR: Bobby Poirier will be facilitating this 90 minute monthly CMG LA Mindfulness Meditation Group, where we will learn, discuss and experience the core principles of mindfulness meditation. Learn key mindfulness practices that can increase your stress tolerance, and how to incorporate them into your daily life. Learn how to tame your mind, regulate your mood, and free the heart to become calmer, happier and at peace.
Suggested readings for CMG meditators are “Meditation for Beginners” by Jack Kornfield and “”Buddah’s Brain” by Rick Hanson.

If CMG is new to you, one of our local events is a great way to find out about the California Men's Gatherings and the many wonderful men who get involved. Since 1978, CMG has been a place where all men -- gay, bi, trans, and straight, from 18-80+ can find a different way to connect.
