Being Mindful in a Busy World

We all lead such busy lives that our mental, emotional and physical health suffers from the disconnect that can happen between ourselves and life.  Mindfulness is the act of paying purposeful attention to the present moment.  It offers us a way to enjoy our lives more and reduce stress through a few simple practices.  This program will help participants explore benefits of mindfulness meditation and teach them techniques that reduce stress and increase life satisfaction.
