Sun Prairie Mindfulness Circle

Join Piano Gal Shop owner Marta Hansen, along with SPHS teacher Eric Piotrowski for a chance to learn about Mindfulness as a tool to utilize in our everyday lives. Our 30 minute gatherings are on Wednesdays at 4pm and include time talk, ask questions, andpractice Mindfulness strategies.

Mindfulness simply means maintaining a moment-to-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment. It is a tool to help with the reduction of stress, anxiety, depression, and anger. Research has also shown that it increases ones empathy towards others and helps develop more self-control. Mindfulness practice is not an overnight fix and is not for everyone.

Here at The Piano Gal Shop, we want to use our resources to help adults and children alike feel connected to our community and feel that they are welcome. We can accomplish this by sharing the benefits of Mindfulness practice.

Our gatherings are always free. All are welcome, including children and families. Join us weekly, or whenever you can. More information….

You Matter Cards

A You Matter Card is a simple tool that is available to show others that you care. In a world that is so busy that we often do not stop and notice when someone else is in need, these cards can serve as a reminder to not only show you care but to also act on it.

Keep a handful of these cards on your desk, at the counter of your business, in your classroom, in your backpack, in your purse, or wherever. When you see someone getting picked on, looking lonely, or being singled out for being different (the list goes on), these cards can give you that tool to reach out and make a connection with that person. It can be hard to stop and ask if someone we don’t know is alright. It makes us feel vulnerable. We don’t want to get singled out ourselves. Give them a card. Tell them in this quiet yet powerful way that they matter. They are worthy. It is a small gesture that could mean so much to someone.

Stop in to The Piano Gal Shop anytime during our business hours, and we will have these cards available. You can also simply use the download below and print your own.

Let’s make this a movement of love, kindness, and connection! Share this page on your social media and use the hashtag #youmattercards. Spread the word that even the smallest gesture can make a big difference!
