Join us for the a powerful day of Mindfulness….                                               

“Mindfulness means maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of  our  thoughts,  feelings,  bodily  sensations,  and the surrounding environment. Mindfulness also  involves  acceptance, meaning  that we  pay  attention to our  thoughts and feelings without judging them -without  believing, for instance,  that there’s  a  “right” or “wrong”  way to think or feel in a given  moment. When we  practice mindfulness, our  thoughts tune  in  to what we’re  sensing in the present moment  rather than  rehashing the past or imagining  the future.”~  Brené  Brown
