Life can feel quite scattered and stressful, even on our best days, let alone when life holds disruption and uncertainty.

When we lack awareness in the present moment, we experience consequences such as: We do not realize how our mood can influence our experiences We do not realize we carry tension and stress in the body We miss out on the positive and joyful moments life offers We miss information needed to make wise and loving decisions We hold on to unpleasant experiences for longer than necessary (A Clinician's Guide to Teaching Mindfulness, Christianne Wolf & J. Greg Serpa) Mindfulness Meditation is the intentional directing of attention on the present moment experience with loving awareness. The goal is to rest in this awareness and cultivate an open heart and open mind. This 3 hour session will offer an overview of Mindfulness Meditation and how it can support resilience and open-hearted awareness.
