Mindfulness is our ability to be present and aware of ourselves. By paying attention to what is happening in and around us, we can make space for our overwhelming emotions. This presence becomes more natural when we engage in a daily practice. Over the course of this 6 week class, we will learn a Mindfulness Meditation technique and work on designing a daily habit. This 45 min. online class will meet at 6 pm on the following Wednesdays: 03/31, 04/07, 04/14, 04/21, 04/28, 05/05.
