Mindfulness is the practice of being present to one’s experience with loving attention, which studies have shown helps reduce stress and promotes wellbeing. Participants will be introduced to a variety of Mindfulness teachings. Students of Mindfulness report greater levels of calm, peace and contentment as they engage with these practices.
