"Still Life: The Myths and Magic of Mindful Living"

The Paterno Fellows Program invites you to our virtual salon, “Still Life: The Myths and Magic of Mindful Living” with best-selling author and yogi meditation teacher Rebecca Pacheco. In her book, Still Life, Pacheco offers an in-depth exploration of mindfulness and meditation misconceptions to arm the reader with inspirational and practical tools for cultivating a consistent mindfulness practice in their own lives—regardless of experience level or lifestyle.

A limited number of free copies of Still Life will be distributed for participants to read prior to the event. Reading the book is encouraged but not required.

This talk with discussion is free and open to the public. Free books are available to students in the Paterno Fellows Program through October 15, and extended to the public thereafter while supplies last.
