    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 monthly 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 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 8:00-9:00 p.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.

    At our monthly meetings, there is never enough time, yet so much to share (and hear!)! If you've been there, join us for this informal social hour and connect with friends both old and new. We've made this event free for both members and potential members, so invite your non-member friends and colleagues to join us and introduce them to the positive energy that FEW Kansai brings to you! 

    Depending on numbers, we may break into smaller groups and rotate around to make it easier to talk. 

    We hope to see you there!

    Kansai FEW Readers Group

    Date:       Wednesday, February 16, 2022

    Time:       8:00-9:00 p.m.

    Place:      Zoom (Link will be sent before event start.)

    Cost:        Free for FEW Members

    Register:  By February 15, midnight

    Do you enjoy reading? Is talking about books and getting reading recommendations your idea of a good time? If so, please join us for the very first Kansai FEW Readers Group. It’s a casual gathering of readers who share what they’ve been reading lately and trade reading tips and recommendations. (Note: It's not a book club. We are not reading one book together.)

    Here is the plan:

    1. Meet at the scheduled time on ZOOM.
    2. Each participant will be given 10 minutes. This time will be divided into 6 minutes to talk about a book (or books) they are reading or have read recently. The final 4 minutes will be to answer any questions.
    3. The book(s) discussed can be fiction or non-fiction.
    4. You can use the 6 minutes as you like. However, please don’t just recount the story or give spoilers.
    5. Once you’ve done your bit, sit back, relax, and get more ideas for your reading wish list!

    Once you have registered, you'll receive an email with more detailed information about this event.

    HOST: Rebecca Arthur

    The link will be emailed to you about 30 minutes before the event starts. We will also post it in our Facebook Member's Area on event night--so, members, if you decide to join at the last minute, please find the link and drop in.

    We hope to see you there!
