Mindfulness- Twice a Month – Next: July 11 – 4 p.m.

Mindfulness is a meditative practice in which an individual attempts to hone their mental focus on the present moment. Often, we can find ourselves caught up in everyday life, in a constant state of “doing,” rather than simply “being.” The intention in mindfulness is to ground one’s thoughts and attention in the present moment in order to appreciate the present, and to allow whatever pops into the mind during practice, be it good or bad thoughts, to simply come and go. The idea is to let them be, without judging or holding tightly onto them. There is a vast literature documenting the wide array of benefits, both mental and physical, of practicing mindfulness regularly. Mindfulness can be practiced in different settings, but a common method is group sessions.
