Mindfulness Made Simple (Part I)

February 3, 2021
12:10 p.m.-1:30 p.m.

Zoom fatigue got you down?

Based on science and reason, there are simple methods that have been proven to increase one’s capacity to create happiness and decrease suffering. In part one of this two part experience, you will join us as we focus on the practical implementation of mindfulness meditation, rather than just a conceptual understanding.

Drawing upon research and the MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) model, you will discover and take part in mindfulness-based practices that promote greater connection, and resilience, even in the face of life’s challenges.
