Do you ever feel like you’re on autopilot—that your past experiences and anxiety about the future can sometimes dictate how you navigate the world? Join us for a seminar that will teach you about mindfulness—a practice that will build your presence of mind, increase your capacity to cope with life’s stressors, and help you engage in more thoughtful discourse and decision-making. This practice-based seminar will leave you feeling more balanced and relaxed, and will provide you with:

  • Information that will help you identify negative coping mechanisms, including unconscious patterns of thinking and behavior
  • Mindfulness and breathing practices for mental, emotional, and physical well-being
  • Proactive strategies for coping, building deeper self-awareness, and enhancing your capacity for self-care
