Description:

"Nothing can bring you peace but yourself." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

An antidote to the stresses of modern times, mindfulness is a mind-body approach to well-being that invites us to stop, breathe, observe, and connect with our inner experience. Scientific research has shown a regular mindfulness practice can help to:

  • Increase attention, focus and concentration
  • Decrease anxiety and depression and lessen emotional reactivity
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Increase self-awareness, self-trust, and self-acceptance
  • Foster a greater sense of well-being

Join us for these free drop-in sessions where mindfulness facilitator, Jennifer Howd will provide an introduction to the basics of mindful meditation and present tips for bringing the practice of mindfulness into our daily lives.
