What it means to feel great and how to achieve that is different for each individual. In this interactive, two-part series, we will explore together the role and quality of food (tastings included of course!), movement, sleep, resilience, and connectedness in our lives.

Sunday, Feb 28 Mindfulness Meditation Workshop, Steve Mains
Steve Mains will provide specific meditation instruction in various mindfulness practices including what to do with your body, breathing, eyes and mind. We will do short meditation sessions with each of several practices, so you can get the feel of the practice. Your questions will be answered.
Steve Mains has studied and practiced meditation for over 40 years. For three of those years, he lived in a meditation center focusing full time on the study and practice of meditation. Steve has been fortunate to have studied with true meditation masters. One such master, his principal teacher, authorized him to serve as a mediation instructor.

Our first 8 checks have arrived and we received $2,473!
Thank you to everyone who is participating!
Please keep up the momentum (as we only qualify for these dividends in months that $5k or more are 'loaded' onto gift cards.)
We have been receiving a ton of questions about how to obtain/use the King Sooper’s gift cards to benefit the CBE Religious School. Hopefully this FAQ will help!
1. Obtain a pre-loaded gift card from the CBE office (it comes with $2.50 already on it).
2. Go to King Soopers to shop!
Before ringing up your groceries 'load' more $money onto your gift card with cash or your credit card. This can either be done at customer service or right at the check-out stand. NOTE: This must be done before you start ringing up your items.
3. Use your gift card to buy groceries or at their Loaf 'n Jug gas stations.
NOTE: you will still get 'points' and 'miles' when you participate.
