Nathan W. Gates will be discussing topics related to health, wellness and psychological well-being. Nathan is a licensed clinical professional counselor at Spoon River Counseling & Wellness in Canton.  He also teaches, speaks, writes and, when time allows, fly fishes for any species that will chase a fly.  The fishing is often neglected, as he also has two young children with his wife, Emily.

For those of you with an interest, or even a curiousity about meditation, I will be offering a two week class in mindfulness meditation in conjunction with the YWCA.  It will be on the next two thursdays, the 19th and 26th, from 6-7:15.  In the interest of accessibility, the cost will be only $25 for both sessions. For more information or to sign up, call 309-647-0441 during business hours.  I'd like to use the rest of the post to give a bit of a primer on how to practice mindfulness meditation.

Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; On purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally.
