Living Fully Mindfully with Gloria Green

Living Fully Mindfully with Gloria Green

Meeting Rooms A & B Combined
Mon, 01/07/2019 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm

Mindfulness is more than just meditation. It is learning to live in the present, instead of rehashing the past or worrying about the future. It is popping out of autopilot and becoming aware of our thoughts. We have greater balance, control and fuller participation in life when we are in control of our thoughts.

In this class, learn how mindfulness can help you increase your attention span and amplify your focus, become master of your thoughts, respond rather than react to challenging situations, and increase your curiosity to improve your listening skills.

Register for the entire 4-week series, Mondays, January 7 - February 4 (no class January 21).
