You may have heard reports of the power of a mindfulness practice to be more present in your life, to tame anxiety and to develop the capacity to respond, rather than react, to the challenges in life. Whether you are looking for instruction in how to begin a mindfulness practice, wanting to refresh an existing practice or seeking more training in the basics of mindfulness after taking a topical mindfulness class, consider joining us in Mindfulness Lab 1. We will explore creating and incorporating an effective and ongoing mindfulness practice in your life.
