Mindfulness is a natural state of mind, a way of relating to all of experience, whether that experience is
perceived as positive, negative, or neutral. When in a mindful state one is aware of the activity of body
and mind, in the present moment, bringing a non-judgmental acceptance to all that is perceived.
Mindfulness is the awareness that emerges through paying attention on purpose, in the present moment,
and non-judgmentally to the unfolding of experience moment to moment.

Attendees can expect to be taught mindfulness practices and guided meditations, receive information about stress and wellbeing and grow in resilience and health. This class is open to all Veterans, Military Members, and their dependents.

You must register, and you MUST attend all 4 classes.
Cost: $25 for 4 classes
