The Practice of Presence through the Concord Library (via Zoom)

September 15 @ 7:30 pm

Explore simple mindful wellness practices that settle the mind, honor the body and enhance overall well-being. Together, we’ll examine the path toward freedom from stress and experience the power of the pause in a time of crisis. Lara Wilson, founder of Concord’s non-profit mindful wellness collaborative, Be Well Be Here, will share ways to integrate mindfulness into daily life through meditation and movement tailored to your natural way of BEing. Free and open to ALL!

Lara JK Wilson, MA, GMCS, a 35-year meditator and award-winning short story writer, devotes her life to exploring the intersection of personal narrative and mindful well-being. After more than a decade teaching master fiction workshops and serving on the board at Grub Street in Boston, she took a Great Pause to battle stage III breast cancer for 18 months. This meaningful journey prompted Lara to establish Be Well Be Here, a non-profit mindful wellness educational collaborative in Concord, which offers personalized programming, community outreach and well-being retreats. Lara holds a master’s degree in English and American literature and a graduate certificate in mindfulness studies, as well as RYT-200 (yoga) and Reiki Level II designations. Currently, she serves on the board of the Friends of the Concord Free Public Library, where she organizes the Authors Series and Mindfulness Programming. In January 2019, Lara was appointed curator of the Concord Festival of Authors. For more information, please visit BeWellBeHere.org
