In today’s fast-paced world with multitasking and around-the-clock networking it is easy to lose touch with ourselves and what matters most in our lives. Many of us long to experience calmness, less day-to-day stress, and rediscover what brings true meaning to us. Mindfulness and mediation have been popularized in the media and social media as ‘tools’ to achieve a more balanced, healthier, and happier life, and they have become an integral part of wellness offerings.

But what exactly is ‘mindfulness’ – what does it mean and how can practicing mindfulness and meditation help us live meaningful, content lives? As importantly, is this right for me and can mindfulness practices and meditation fit into my already over-scheduled life? In this introductory program, we will explore these and other questions to demystify some misconceptions around meditation. We will discuss and practice mindfulness approaches and, in a safe environment with like minded peers, explore mindfulness meditation, and how to incorporate these practices into our day-to-day lives.

Join us if mindfulness has been on your mind, if you considered or explored meditation before, if you have a regular meditation practice and enjoy guided meditations. or if you simply want to expand your understanding of these topics. No experience necessary!
