Meditation is known to reduce stress, anxiety, depression, and even pain. It increases cognitive functioning and self-awareness, builds emotional resilience, and supports well-being. But for so many of us, it seems like an unachievable feat that only the “supremely zen” can master. Whether you are convinced you can’t meditate, interested in understanding how to cultivate a practice, or are in need of a reset to boost your meditation practice, this event is for you. We will get curious and explore what it means to be in present moment awareness, discuss ways to experience mindful moments in your daily life, and practice a guided meditation. We will have some time for reflection and to address any questions. Expect to leave with new tools to help manage your mind.
