Every one of us already has the seed of mindfulness. The practice is to cultivate it.
Thich Nhat Hanh
Start the New Year with a new perspective!

Mindfulness provides powerful skills for coping with stress and for personal growth.

Learn about the benefits of mindfulness practices on physical health, cognition, and general well-being, and experience for yourself a sampling of short mindfulness exercises! 

Walking Meditation

The class is designed for both beginners, and those who want to add to a personal practice of mindfulness.
A special focus will be on integrating mindfulness into our lives- learning to pay attention, moment by moment.

Time for Q & A will follow.

What a difference! The knowing that had been theoretical suddenly became very real for me. The connection between mindful presence and vitality of life had never been clearer.​

Overall the course has had a very positive impact on my life. It was great to have it available during this crazy period in history. I hope I have the opportunity to work with you again.

To complement the course, I started taking long walks in Riverside Park where I use the technique of mindful walking. It is soothing and pleasant, as well as being part of an overall healthier lifestyle for me.​
