Date:  Monday, January 28, 2019

 

Time: 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

 

Topic: Mindfulness - It’s Not What You Think

 

Description: “With the current “buzz” surrounding Mindfulness, there so are many possibilities to discover this powerful practice.  But where do you start?  A book, a CD, a class?  Join us for a fun and experiential discovery into Mindfulness and learn how to start or strengthen your own Mindfulness practice.

 

Mindfulness is a modern practice which stems from an ancient tradition.  In this engaging presentation we will learn some Mindfulness-Based exercises that can help us focus and get off “autopilot”.  These teachable exercises can reduce stress and improve well-being for ourselves and for our patients.
