Intro to Mindfulness Series

11/08/2018 - 6:00pm to 7:30pm

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.

Learn more at the facilitator's website:

We learn to see our habitual behavior and to determine which habits no longer serve us. By training our brain we have access to a calm yet alert state of mind.

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
Increase your curiosity to improve your listening skills
