    Take a Mindful Break with FEW

    Join us for a "Mindful Break"--a short mindfulness practice hosted by FEW member Leigh Kennedy. These are now offered regularly to any member wanting to step away from her busy day and take some time to focus on the present moment. No prior participation is required.

    Leigh will lead us in some gentle body movements and breathing and will include some journaling time, so have a pen and paper or a favorite journal nearby. No special equipment is required. Please wear comfortable clothes, and join us from a space in your home where you can stretch comfortably.

    The Mindful Break will run from 8:00-9:00p.m. It is free of charge and open to FEW members. 

    A Zoom link will be sent to all registered participants about 30 minutes before the start of the event. Please register by 7:00pm the day of the event to ensure you receive the link to join. 

    Instructor: Leigh Kennedy
    Leigh is a licensed clinical social worker as well as a certified yoga instructor. She has a special interest in the power of mindfulness in our daily lives and enjoys hosting this space where we can practice being mindful together.

    • Hankyu Minoh Station
    Register

    FEW Kansai is offering another stimulating outdoor event--this time on a Sunday in late November, when the weather should be cool and comfortable and the autumn colors on full display. We will hike from Hankyu Minoh Station to Minoh Waterfall on a paved trail with some not-too-steep inclines (takes about 45 minutes each way). We will pass by some shops and a temple along the way with nature's beauty always in full view. Even though the trail is paved, comfortable footwear is recommended.

    You can find a good description at this site:

    https://www.japan-guide.com/e/e4019.html

    Meet at Hankyu Minoh Station at 10:00 a.m. 

    Event fee:

        Members: FREE

        Nonmembers: ¥500 (pay on event day)

    Register by Saturday, November 21, and include your mobile number in the registration info!
