Mindfulness & Meditation

Mindfulness can be defined as paying attention to the present moment with openness, curiosity, and acceptance.  Mindfulness in every day experiences is best strengthened and supported by a regular meditation practice.  This practice invites us to slow down, breathe and observe our inner experience.  We invite you to sample a variety of our mindfulness and meditation offerings that can support you in exploring and developing a regular practice.
