We invite you to a very unique evening of Meditation & Mindfulness. Our special guest, Carlos Mora, will guide you on an experiential journey of the senses with Mindfulness techniques he has learned through 20 years of blindness and meditation.
Carlos’ life took a difficult turn 20 years ago upon becoming blind taking him through depression, confusion, and anger. However, Meditation and Prayer opened his heart and mind to an ample view of life’s opportunities for wonder, joy, kindness, and love. In his own words: “Thanks to losing my eyesight, I can see and feel plenty more”
Carlos’ newly discovered inner-strength motivated him to seek asylum in the USA moving away from a difficult lifestyle in Venezuela. He arrived in Minnesota knowing 5 words in the English language; yet, a few years later earned a Master of Science in Clinical Psychology at John Hopkins University and currently works as a Psycho-Therapist at San Francisco General Hospital. He has been a regular contributor to Awakin Oakland for two years, and he’s always contributing to his family in Venezuela. Carlos’ kind heart is always expanding! A very modest lifestyle allows him to send money to his mother in Venezuela and remain connected with all of his family & friends. Furthermore, he has sponsored tuition and lodging for 3 nieces and a nephew at universities of medicine and dentistry in Latino America.
Carlos’ kindness is felt locally as well. He provides free consultation and coaching skills to friends, friends of friends, and clinical services in various clinics and hospitals to homeless people, LGBT groups, the Spanish speaking, and underserved populations in the Bay Area.
For this particular evening, Carlos would like you to join this mutual experience of mindfulness, by using a blindfold and participate in a dark and quiet place. The zoom session will be auditory only for the first part of the session. It will be a healing sensory experience.
