Mindfulness Mondays: Starting A Meditation Practice

In this six-part series you will learn how to use mindfulness and meditation to positively shift and optimize your mental, emotional, and physiological states. Explore foundational tools, practical experiences, and guided meditations to begin or boost your personal mindfulness and meditation practice and learn methods that can help you decrease stress, improve mood, increase mental focus and productivity, and become more resilient.
This class is virtual, but we encourage you to join us from a peaceful place whether that is outside at the park or a cozy spot at home.
