What is Mindfulness? According to Jon Kabat-Zinn, founder of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, “Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment and nonjudgmentally.”

Practicing mindfulness can bring improvements in both physical and psychological symptoms as well as positive changes in health, attitudes and behaviors.

This class will provide participants with an introduction and new skills to the practice of mindfulness to reduce stress, depression and anxiety.

Lessons will include:

  • Beginning with Breath
  • Mindful Eating
  • Laughter is Good Medicine
  • Be Kind to Your Mind
  • Mindful Walking

 

Classes will be held on Mondays only from January 8 - May 21, 2018 at 11:15 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

This is a closed group series.
