bi-Monthly mindfulness club

InSpire clubs are an outreach effort of Instill Mindfulness SWVA based in Floyd, VA.

Each meeting features a mindfulness practice led by one of the members, discussion, and some fun activities. Each club also develops their own service-based activities, based on a desire to inspire greater community-mindedness in their community.

All are welcomed. No experience is necessary.

As a club there will be four major themes:

Mindfulness: Each meeting will feature a practice session.

Service: Each club will determine its own service-based activities, based on a desire to inspire community-mindedness in their community.

Community: Community is the central theme for the InSpire clubs. 

      Community will be recognized on three levels:

        1. The InSpire community;

       2. The external community; and

       3. The intrapersonal community, of mind, body, and spirit.

       A strong sense of community will be developed in InSpire clubs through the following mechanisms:

      • A commitment to inclusivity;

      • Mentoring, in which each new   member is mentored by an existing member;

      • Regular gatherings, with each one possibly based around a meal; and

      • A fully democratic system of power, in which decisions are consensus-based, and regular leadership    changes. Where possible, the outgoing leader will mentor the incumbent.

Fun: There will be an emphasis on making membership enjoyable. This will be achieved

through games, activities, and creating regular opportunities for interconnection.
